This documentary shows the evolution of the 1960s dance craze called "the twist." Interviewed are several singers and musicians who contributed to the trend, notably Hank Ballard, Chubby Checker, and Joey Dee. Also shown are clips from TV shows showcasing the twist, such as American Bandstand, and films made to cash in on the fad, such as The T.A.M.I. Show, Go, Man, Go!, and Twist All Night. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi
