This was the first feature film directed by Taylor Hackford. The story is loosely based on the life of rock entreprenuer Bob Marcucci. Marcucci was the Svengali who discovered and developed the careers of teen idol singers Fabian and Frankie Avalon. Marcucci was played by Ray Sharkey, a talented actor, who unfortunately battled with drug addiction and HIV. For this film Sharkey won a Golden Globe for the Best Motion Picture Actor - Musical/Comedy. His career continued, despite difficultes thru some 28 films. Sharkey was also memorable as Marco in Brian DePalma's film WISE GUYS. The teen idol in this film is played winningly by Peter Gallagher. If you haven't seen this film, you should! The poster is in very fine condition, never folded.
