Eddie and the Cruisers
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eddie and the Cruisers is a 1983 American film directed by Martin Davidson with the screenplay written by the director and Arlene Davidson, based on the novel by P. F. Kluge. It was marketed with the tagline "Rebel. Rocker. Lover. Idol. Vanished."
Contents

Plot
The film is about two different stories, one told in real time, and one told in flashbacks: the present day story concerns a television reporter named Maggie Foley (Ellen Barkin) investigating the mysterious death of musician Eddie Wilson (Michael Paré) and the search for his band's second album, which disappeared from the vaults of Satin Records the day after Eddie's alleged death.

The story told in flashbacks portrays a 1960s rock 'n' roll band called Eddie and the Cruisers. The band makes a name for itself while playing regularly at a Somers Point, New Jersey club called Tony Mart's. It is there that they meet Frank Ridgeway (Tom Berenger), whom Eddie hires to be the band's keyboard player and lyricist, and whom he nicknames "Wordman". Band manager Doc Robbins (Joe Pantoliano) and bassist Sal Amato (Matthew Laurance) are skeptical of hiring Frank, who is not a trained musician or experienced songwriter, but Eddie believes that Frank is crucial to the band's development........

I am only the "Houseband". I had to run up to the stage, sit down, pull the mic boom down close to my mouth and start singing. 25 times. I know I never goofed, not once. I think they did it about others, different angles, etc. THEN they all started dancing. At one point they all held up their lit cigarette lighters in honor of Eddie. I have one ... somewhere.

What fun. A director stood up on the stage and assigned the "extras" who their dance partners would be. Notice them in the film - WHAT good matches!! They didn't EVEN KNOW each other - yet talking, laughing just like a real night club scene. You (pointing) with him, you with her, you with him etc.

An "extra" is a person in a film who doesn't have a speaking part. They consider singing, speaking ... so much more money! GOOD!

It's Magic :DN4

We'll Have These Moments To Remember :DN4

Aww, Joni, so cool. I didn't know there was a second one either but I'd go with Rumpy and figure it was a flop without you.

packy ... I had a very small part. How wonderful though, to be on a set of a major motion film for 3 days. I never look at films the same way again. All staged. All magic. All wonderful artistic people ALL over the place. ALL WINNERS!!

Here's To The Winners! :DN4
