Sometime between the advent of rock 'n' roll and the birth of MTV, rock stars took to making feature-length films to showcase their talent, and in the process rock 'n' roll movies became a genre of their own. Recording artist and rock historian Marshall Crenshaw has compiled an appropriately irreverent guide to over 850 rock 'n' roll movies. Hollywood Rock presents the good, the bad, and the ugly of music and movies, every one viewed and described by a writer who has a particular interest in the genre. They provide plot summaries, casting information, and a rating system for well-known rock flicks such as A Hard Day's Night, Jailhouse Rock, Grease, The Girl Can't Help It, The Blues Brothers, and Saturday Night Fever, as well as specialist rockumentaries like Cocksucker Blues, The Last Waltz and D.A. Pennebaker's classic film about Bob Dylan, Don't Look Back. Hollywood Rock is a rock odyssey of films from around the world that not only have rock as a subject, but also films whose soundtracks and subject matter are part of rock culture. An invaluable reference source for the video age, the book is a treasure trove of trivia for rock and film fans alike.
