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).

HASH(0xa864da08) out of 5 stars vintage sixties movie Oct. 2 2012
By marcee r. - Published on
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.

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.

HASH(0xa8652078) out of 5 stars Great movie Feb. 21 2015
By Katherine, just Katherine - Published on
Format: DVD
I really liked this movie. I first saw this movie, as a kid way back in '67. The movie theater in Fort Bragg ran "second-run" movies as matinees in the summertime, so a movie like that was a treat. At the time, I just enjoyed the music and the dancing. Many decades later, as an adult, TBS (or was it TNT) was running "The Cool Ones" late one night, and I decided to record it on the VCR. I'm glad that I did. This time, besides enjoying the music, I got the jokes, too. Deborah Whalley and Gil Peters were just fine in their roles; Roddy McDowell was a real hoot and the record producer; kind of a cross between Prince and Phil Spector. If reality shows had been around then, "Mrs. Miller" would have had her own show. Actor George Furth had somewhat of a small part, but then again, he had more career ahead of him than behind him. And Glen Campbell? Why didn't I recognize him the first time? Oh yeah, I was eight.

HASH(0xa8652168) out of 5 stars Mrs. Miller. Need I Say More? Aug. 18 2013
By David E.Baldwin - Published on
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.
