Today 1957 Alan Freed's movie Mr Rock 'n Roll premiered
Today exactly fifty years ago Alan Freed's movie "Mr. Rock 'n Roll", featuring Chuck Berry, LaVern Baker, Frankie Lymon and Little Richard, among a lot of others, premiered in New York.
Great black and white movie, so I'll watch it tonight again.
Some other noteworthy info : same year, even the same day !
Same day a year later (1958) all three public High Schools in Little Rock are closed for one year by Governor Faubus.
Yeah remember those events so well. Already exactly 50 years ago, but it seems like yesterday.
It's not perfect nowadays (far from that) but it's (a little) better.
Just noticed my writing Great black and white movie.......
A simple 'deeper thought' : we can't get along without each other !
