The Big Beat (1958) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring William Reynolds, Andra Martin, Gogi Grant, Jeffrey Stone, Rose Marie, Hans

Conried, Bill Goodwin, Fats Domino, Harry James

Directed by Will Cowan



Print: color

Runtime: 81 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



Shipped out on a double bill with Summer Love, Universal's The Big Beat is another of those

"rock & roll salads" so popular in the late 1950s. What plot there is concerns the efforts by

record executive John Randall (William Reynolds) to sign up several top R&R acts. John

also wants to prove his mettle to his old-fashioned exec father Joseph (Bill Goodwin),

whose tastes are strictly squaresville. Aiding and abetting Randall is his faithful secretary

Nikki (Andrea Martin), who of course worships the shag rug her boss walks on. Comic relief

is provided by the one-time-only teaming of Rose Marie and Hans Conried. (This alone is

worth the admission price!) The musical highlights in The Big Beat are provided by such

luminaries as Gogi Grant, Fats Domino ("I'm Walking"), and the Diamonds.
