Description by OLDIES.com:

With just a cheap guitar and one suitcase, Bud Eagle (Arch Hall, Jr.) rolls into Hollywood on his motorcycle. He's invited to attend a TV taping and when one of the performers falls ill, Bud jumps on stage and takes his place. Within moments, the crowd goes wild and Bud is an instant star. The biggest manager in Hollywood, Mike McCauley (William Watters), takes Bud under his wing, promising him fortune and fame. He showers him with gifts and women, but ends up taking him for everything he's worth. But Bud isn't stupid and along with his girlfriend Vickie, they concoct a plan for revenge.

Wild Guitar is the second movie starring the legendary Arch Hall, Jr., who went on to star in a series of films (including Eegah! and The Sadist) that were produced by his entrepreneur father for Fairway International Pictures. Director Ray Dennis Steckler went on to acclaim with such 60's drive-in classics as The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed Up Zombies. Steckler also performed in Wild Guitar using his nom de-cinema, Cash Flagg.

Rating 5.0 I Loved It! Movie Lover: from POTTSTOWN, PA US -- November, 9, 2013

Just bought this movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The opening scenes brought back memories of our trip to California. I loved Arch Hall in "Eegah" - he was great in this movie too. Arch Hall, Jr. is the best!


Rating 5.0 Wild Guitar Movie Lover: from edgein -- June, 21, 2005

Yet another jewel in the cinematic crown of Arch Hall, Jr.. Those looks, that voice....man, he should have been one of the all time greats. This movie, while not as great as his magnum opus "Eegah", is tremendous. Great singing, a plot as believable as anything you will see in a "Roadrunner" cartoon, and sterling acting and directing from Ray Dennis Steckler....what more could anybody want??? Listen for the song "Vickie"--it shows up in "Eegah", too!!
