It's an Elvis movie without Elvis! Cult director Ray Dennis Steckler (The Thrill Killers) made his directorial debut with Wild Guitar, a cheesy, campy, surprisingly entertaining musical drama starring Arch Hall Jr. as Bud Eagle, a naïve singer who gets a shot at the big time. Steckler not only directed this frenzy of musical action, but also appears as a menacing thug working for record company crooks. Co-written and produced by Hall's father, Arch Hall Sr., (who should be known as the godfather of exploitation for films like The Chopper and The Sadist) this one really rocks! (BW)
