Synopsis

An aspiring teen pop singer lands in L.A. to try make it big, and is swallowed up by the evils of showbiz in this delightfully low-budget musical. Directed by underground filmmaker Ray Dennis Steckler, with Vilmos Zsigmond as DoP, this ultimate rags-to-riches saga teeters on the edge of spoof.

Our take

Ray Dennis Steckler made his directorial debut with this surfer rock-scored, Elvis Presley-inspired B-movie about an aspiring musician’s sudden success. Swerving between Faustian fable, pop comedy and music industry parody, it features the early work of Oscar-winning cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond!
