TEENAGE MILLIONAIRE - Jimmy Clanton (1961)

And now for something a little bit different! Not scary or Sci-Fi but a psychotronic musical fantasy for sure, "Teenage Millionaire" is like a 1961 Dodge Dart with a push-button transmission, you don't really want to own one, but it's fun to drive at least once!! So, right now, here's Jimmy Clanton singing the theme to "Teenage Millionaire" especially for you!!!

The movie is in black and white, but the music is in colour, go figure!!

Pretty swank digs with former boxing great Rocky Graziano and Jimmy chillin' by the pool!

"Teenage Millionaire" featured music from some of the top hitmakers of the day, like Jackie Wilson, Chubby Checker, Dion, the Bill Black Combo and Marv Johnson. In a desperate attempt to establish new talent out of nowhere 1961 style, they tried to promote two other artists by the names of Vicki Spencer, and Jack Larson. Needless to say, Jack and Vicki's career's went nowhere except right about here!!
