The mysterious Mrs. Eleanor Carter moves to Springfield with her two teen-age children Jimmy and Cathy. Eleanor makes friends with the town's social leader, Mrs. Wellington, who supports her idea for a town youth center, and she is aided by Tom Griffith, the high school principal.

Rockabiliy Baby was quite an enjoyable Rock 'n' Roll/Big Band hybrid comedy
26 March 2017 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This was sort of a hybrid Rock 'n' Roll/Big Band sort of movie as many of the songs mention R'n'R and sound like they would be comfortable in the late '50s era though since the main bandleader is Les Brown and His Band of Renown, you also hear plenty of his BB sound as well. The two young women singing the "Rock" songs-Judy Busch and Marlene Willis-both sound good, wonder why they didn't become successful? There's also an amusing appearance of Irene Ryan-years before her turn as Granny on "The Beverly Hillbillies" and an interesting one of Ellen Corby-years before becoming Grandma Walton on "The Waltons". I should also mention that she also previously appeared in my favorite movie-It's a Wonderful Life-as one of the people Jimmy Stewart encountered during the run-on-the-bank sequence. For the most part, with quite some humorous scenes, I enjoyed Rockabilly Baby.
