    “debut of sixteen year-old Arch Hall Jr. as Cruiser” who went on to star (if you can call it that) in Eegah!!

    I’m surprised the MST3K folks didn’t get their hands on this one too. Thanks for the find!

    “The Choppers” is one of those vaguely un-copyrighted films that shows up at the 99-CENT STORE and the check-out line at KMART.

    It’s definitely one of the better pre-Easy Rider-youth-gone-wild films, with a lot of rebellious backroads action.

    Two other Arch Hall Jr classics are “EEGAH!” (watch out for major poolside twisting!) and the ultra-cool “Wild Guitar” whose soundtrack features some strange singing and even stranger lyrics

    The majority of Arch Hall Jr’s films were written and directed by his good ol’ dad (Arch Hall Sr, of course!) and made good money at the time (drive-ins, triple bills)

    Arch Hall Jr. definitely had “the look” and a somewhat otherworldly air about him (those piercing blue eyes!) – and he still plays the occasional rockabilly festival

    Arch has a CD called “Wild Guitar” that is worth owning. It has 48 cuts that are either from his band,Arch Hall Jr. and The Archers or movie sound bites from his six films. There is also a very clear early 60′s promotional appearance that he made at a Florida Drive-In with The Archers and co-star of his film “Wild Guitar”,Nancy Czar. Check out his website If you write to him,he’ll answer!
