Rock & Roll tear jerker .....................

Dean Torrence, played by Bruce Davison is such a good friend to ego maniac Jan Berry, played by Richard Hatch, that Berry's constant abuse of Dean, is difficult to watch. The music, from the garage spawned "Jennie Lee", to their surf sounds and beyond, is a highlight of "Deadman's Curve". The movie features a nice assortment of 50s and 60s cars throughout, including some memorable Corvettes. Jan's rehabilitation becomes somewhat tedious, dragging the second half down a notch. Nevertheless as a time capsule, the film succeeds quite nicely. The "bring out the handkerchiefs" ending is unexpected, and quite effective. - MERK
