Don’t Knock the Twist (1962)

An effort by Columbia Pictures to capitalise on the Twist dance craze, produced by notorious cost-cutter Sam Katzman as a virtual remake of Don’t Knock The Rock (1956).

The big question here is, will a romantic triangle spoil an upcoming Twist Spectacular slated for national TV? The answer is hardly worth sticking around for.

The Dovells, though, are particularly spiffy with a cooking version of Bristol Stomp.
