Excellent Bio of Jan and Dean
9 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the true story of pop stars Jan Berry and Dean Torrence-Jan and Dean. I never heard of them until this movie came out in 1978. It shattered all movie-of-the-week films up to that time. After seeing this, I bought all the albums available and was lucky enough to see them live 3-4 times between 1980-1985. I received their autographs shortly before Jan's passing in 2004. Richard Hatch played an outstanding role as Jan. His portrayal as Jan after his accident is remarkable. Bruce Davison as Dean is equally as good. He resembles him quite a bit. Richard Hatch and Bruce Davison actually sang "Barbara Ann" for the movie soundtrack! This movie has all the great Jan and Dean songs. This is one of the best biography movies about rock stars ever.
