Ramones-Rock 'n' Roll High School on the big screen



A couple of weekends ago, the Chandler Cinema screened this Roger Corman production. I enjoyed viewing it on the expanded screen after seeing it diminishingly on VHS years ago. Also, now knowing more of the individual personalities which comprised the Ramones, it was fun to watch see and hear the film from another vantage point with the Ramones' power, glory, workmanship, tensions, tenderness, humor and excitement projecting off the big screen and from the speakers.

Todd Rundgren, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Tom Petty were all were considered as the main musical act for the film. Good thing they all didn't work out because I wouldn't be posting this graphic almost 30 years later.
