Product Details


Product Description

Hey you! Wanna catch the L.A. garage band that first recorded the oft-covered rock essential Hey Joe? That would be the Leaves seen here in a performance of In the House of Dr. Stone. The Cool Ones has more cool musical stuff too. Like Glen Campbell on his way to country/pop renown. Plus This Town the song composed by Lee Hazlewood (the film's music supervisor) that would become a Frank Sinatra staple. And the quirky song styling of mid-'60s camp sensation Mrs. Miller. The film's story spoofs the music industry as it unwinds its loopy tale of a rock kingmaker (Roddy McDowall) and the girl-boy singing duo he plans to rocket to the top of the charts by making them everyone's favorite romantic pair. Tammy TV and film star Debbie Watson plays the duo's starry-eyed ex-go-go dancer and Gil Peterson portrays the handsome crooner whose career had been flatlining. Look for uncredited Teri Garr (Young Frankenstein).

vintage sixties movie Oct. 2 2012
By marcee r. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
the cool ones is entertaining if you like 60's movies. it has an interesting cast including tv's "tammy" debbie watson, phil harris, the infamous "singer" mrs. miller, nita talbot, roddy mcdowall, and glen campbell. the movie music is by lee hazelwood and billy strange and it includes the song "this town" which frank sinatra covered and nancy presented in her special "movin' with nancy." the l.a. scenery is fun, too, since it visits olvera street. the movie pays a silly tribute to the classic teen music show "hullabaloo" with its "whizbam" spoof, and there are some obscure musical acts like the leaves that make appearances. the writers tried to scuff up the movie a little bit with some unnecessary profanity and the plot is wacky but the cool ones is still a hoot to watch if you symbolically still live in the sixties and intend to remain there forever! i recommend this release of the dvd, too because it played beautifully in my dvd player and sounded exceptionally clear as well.

It's cool! Jan. 13 2013
By K. Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Roddy Mcdowall playing a guy with lots of issues is funny. Some of the songs are memorable. The leading man is a little stiff. But the plot is simple and its a fun return to the rock and roll of the 60s. If you don't think to hard its a nice film.

Mrs. Miller. Need I Say More? Aug. 18 2013
By David Baldwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
By no stretch of the imagination is this a good film. Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide assigns it the dreaded "BOMB" rating. Though I wouldn't go that far I can understand the rationale. Stars Debbie Watson and Gil Peterson are Barbie and Ken personified. This is not to say it's a particularly bad movie. As Sixties kitsch it works perfectly. If Watson and Peterson don't get the camp elements of the script Roddy McDowall as a neurotic record producer and Nita Talbot as his saucy assistant definitely do chewing the scenery with aplomb. Noteworthy are abbreviated appearances by Glen Campbell and the legendary garage band, the Leaves("Hey, Joe"). Also noteworthy is Teri Garr is in the film as a predominately unspeaking extra. The flick might have been better if Garr had Watson's role. I can't recommend this flick but those of a psychotronic bent might want to check it out.

60's Music Satire Cooks By Way of Lee Hazlewood & Billy Strange Feb. 18 2014
By Ron Foley Macdonald , . - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Dropped just before Sixties Youth Culture went terminally astray, The Cool Ones is the movie that launched Lee Hazlewood's
immortal tune 'This Town'. Fast-paced and sometimes sharper than it has to be, the film loses its spark towards the ending.
Up to that point it's a must-see. And while Roddy McDowell is a bit over-the-top, it is a satire, after all. The Cool Ones is a film
worth reviving, caught on the fulcrum between early '60s excitement and innocence and the end-of-the-decade disillusionment.
And the music, of course, is terrific.
