Jamboree, known as Disc Jockey Jamboree in the United Kingdom, is the name of a black and white 1957 rock 'n' roll motion picture directed by Roy Lockwood. Its story is about a boy and girl, Pete Porter and Honey Wynn, played by Paul Carr and Freda Holloway, who become overnight sensations as a romantic singing duo who run into trouble when their squabbling managers, played by Kay Medford and Bob Pastine, try to turn them into solo acts. Against this backdrop in cameo performances appear some of the biggest names of rock 'n' roll in the 1950s lip-syncing to their recordings. Jamboree is a film that was built upon the popularity of a name which at the time was becoming associated with rock 'n' roll music and it appears to have derived its name from a show starring disc-jockey Alan Freed that began airing over Radio Luxembourg in 1956 (the year before this movie was released). Freed recorded his featured segment while working for WINS in New York City. A great rivalry developed during this time between Alan Freed and Dick Clark who appears in this film.
