I know nothing of this musical genre, so it was hard for me to appreciate this classic film. There were some funny parts (eg the nun slapping them around), but I was pretty mystified by it all (I mean, jail?) – and I didn’t recognise the famous music people either.
There was definitely a cultural contrast portrayed – stuffy high-class dining, Nazis and Good Old Boys versus RnB – but it’s lost on me. I did enjoy the music though.
