Shockingly enough, I had heard of Rockabilly Weekend before, thanks to Art Mann. If you’ve never heard of Art Mann, you need to go check out his stuff. He’s one of my idols. In fact, I’ll post his look in on Rockabilly Weekend here:

I feel its hard to make a bad documentary. I’m always interested in learning something new and it had been quite some time since I saw Art Mann‘s version of the behind the scenes at Rockabilly. So I was certainly interested in Bombshells and Dollies.

There were times I felt what was being said/talked about got repetitive. I wish they had gone more in depth on the history or even about what the contestants did away from Rockabilly Weekend. Like a before and after on their lives. They did a bit, but in my opinion, not enough.

That being said, by the end of the film, I did find myself rooting for Little Bit so the documentary definitely did it’s job and drew me in.

If you’re into pin-ups, beautiful women, and/or anything retro, this is absolutely a documentary you NEED to see!

Bombshells and Dollies is currently available to rent or buy on most major streaming services.
