The few photos on the walls of McCauley's office include those of Mitch Miller, Leslie Uggams and several other publicity pictures from Miller's television show Sing Along with Mitch (1961)--an odd array of talent for a man who is supposed to be a rock-'n'-roll promoter, especially since Miller, who was also the longtime A&R man at Columbia Records, made it well-known that he hated rock music and it was many years before he allowed rock singers to record for Columbia. Several of the same photos are also visible on the walls of the diner. See more »

People who claim flicks like this to be bad movies are often judging them by unfair standards. Yes, they are not on a level with the works of Kurosawa or Bergman. However, they were never meant to be. The filmmakers didn't intend them to be metaphorical, soul searching, avant-garde epics. These films were made with the intent to be passable entertainment that could make the producers a buck. This is exploitation cinema. And by those standards, "Wild Guitar" is passable entertainment that probably made a buck.
I know many people won't admit it, but I'm a fan of Arch Hall Jr. I've seen four of his films and own the "Wild Guitar" compilation off Norton Records. Hes one of the least attractive "teen idols" ever caught on camera, but is full of likable charms. Hes campy, bewildered, and innocent. The sheer datedness of films such as this are what make them appeal to viewers. Yes, the screenplay is naive and far fetched just like the hero. Takes film like this for what they are. I'd rather watch "Wild Guitar" than "Titanic" or "Lord of the Rings" any day. (5/10)
