Rock Around The World (1957)

This is the story of the early life and rise to fame of Tommy Steele.

It has lousy photography and a metric shit-ton of stock footage, but it nonetheless gives an excellent impression of what was going on in England when The Beatles were still incubating.

With a great introduction to the film by Los Angeles DJ Hunter Hancock and a jam session at the end of the film where the words to the song appear on the screen.
