Floyd Mutrux - American Hot Wax (1978)
This unassuming celebration of the early days of rock 'n' roll manages to recreate the excitement of similar movies from the late 1950s. The plot concerns the efforts of Alan Freed (Tim McIntire), a disk jockey credited with popularizing "rock and roll," garnering acceptance for this new form of popular music despite the efforts of local police to quell it. McIntire's portrayal is particularly energetic. The music dominates the movie with especially enjoyable guest appearances by Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
