MTV's Great Grandfather
4 July 2000 | by LloydianSee all my reviews

This is a fun film showcasing a number of hits from 1964, many of the performances stages specifically for the film. I had not seen it in years, but it has re-emerged on AMC, so if that year's music holds any interest to you, watch and have a ball.
