Riot on Sunset Strip (1967)

In the spirit of blitzkreiging exploitation films, MGM began filming Riot on Sunset Strip about a month and a half after the actual teenage uprising on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles had occurred. Unfortunately producer Sam Katzman felt the major studio was dragging their feet and not moving forward quickly enough so he sold the film to American International Pictures. The youth rock'n'roll scene is represented here through performances from The Standells and The Chocolate Watch Band.
