Rock'n'Roll is a 1959 Australian documentary from director Lee Robinson. It is a filmed version of a rock concert at Sydney Stadium presented by Lee Gordon, Lee Gordon's 1959 Rock'n'Roll Spectacular, with some additional scenes such as Fabian arriving at Sydney airport. (Fabian had been mobbed at Melbourne airport by 2,000 teenagers and had to be spirited away on a 10 foot high platform of a forklift truck.[1])

Only a small portion of footage from the documentary survives today and it is considered a "substantially lost" film.[2]
