That crazy rock 'n' roll beat has taken over her feet.
Available on DVD
Patty Duke plays Billie who is a girl who has it all–the talent, the charm and, especially, the beat. The rock and roll rhythm in her head has her out running every boy on the high school track team. Proving that a girl can do it all, Billie runs circles around the boys and drives them crazy. This video challenges the role of women and their participation in sport. Billie goes so far that she even pole vaults her way onto the cover of a national magazine, drawing more attention to the amazing feats she accomplishes.
