The Contenders: Page 3

41 Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains
42 Quadrophenia

Okay, maybe not the best produced movie ever, but one of the very few movies that reflects the era of the mods. Amphetamines, Vespas, Lambrettas, the fights in Brighton.
Based on the 1973 album of the Who ( the story took place in 1964 ) and of great influence for the mod revival that took place in the late seventies and the eighties after lots of people were desillusioned by the punk movement. I wish they could make this film again with a better production and a more realistic visual in details.

43 Jailhouse Rock

Elvis is THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL, so a list without him would not be very convincing. Despite that I prefer the movie "King Creole " or even "viva las vegas " I decided to choose this one because of the story. It got jealousy, rip-offs, decadence in the music industry...and thus it makes a real rockmovie.
Don't forget,it was made in 1957 when Rock'n'Roll was big.

44 High Fidelity
45 Lisztomania


46 The Great Rock 'n Roll Swindle
47 Live S***: Binge & Purge
48 The Girl Can't Help It

This is Hollywood rock'n'roll, but despite of that it got great color performances of Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Little Richard and many others.

49 Rainbow Bridge

This is a must see a true classic Enjoy the experience and take that trip down memory lane. Many people did and many still are. Peace!
