The Screen Guide

THE SINGER AND THE SWINGER tells us as much about Australia's relationship to American pop culture as it does about Johnny O'Keefe's to Lee Gordon. Two different men brought together during the years 1953-63. The now fabled Lee Gordon was an American hustler and show biz promoter who arrived in Australia just in time to launch the US rock and roll invasion. His scheming, manic energy changed the local popular landscape forever, and through him, Johnny O'Keefe achieved his ambition to become Australia's premiere and pioneering rock and roll star.
