It’s not an understatement to say that the twist changed America. All that gyrating helped loosen up stodgy 1950s mainstream culture, helping move the country “from squareness to awareness.” Exhaustively researched and packed with entertaining and sometimes hilarious footage, Ron Mann’s classic film sets the record straight about the origins of the dance—Hank Ballard, not Chubby Checker, was the Father of the Twist—and its hip-shaking, world-dominating popularity.
