In "Rock All Night" (1957), two killers (Russell Johnson, the Professor on "Gilligan's Island," and Jonathan Haze) hold the patrons of a rock 'n' roll bar at gunpoint. The kids still manage to dance. Featuring music by the Platters and the Blockbusters.
"Movies for teenagers were generally innocuous teenage comedies - Walt Disney specialized in a number of films of that sort," Corman told CBS News. "And I understood that youth is not that frivolous.
