Not much info stretched a long way, 7 September 2004
Author: super8monsters from BEYOND THE C

I love this documentary. It's thoughtful and unintentionally funny in spots, but overall a great success story about a gifted Hunter College drop out turned early teen rock star turned swaggering rat packer hated by Sinatra. BOBBY DARIN:

LIVE AT THE COPA is a TRUE ROCK CONCERT from 1961! Buy it now!

Listening to Tony Orlando gushing near tears over his pal Darin makes you

wonder where he got the crocodile tears. Moments like Darin Jr. describing how the 1968 assassination of RFK affected Darin so much the singer stopped

wearing his toupee in public! Shudders! Or how Bobby Darin adopted working

class duds, and folk guitar, and began calling himself "Bob Darin". And then reality hits Bobby and us the viewer like a Greek tragedy: the secret behind

Darin's mother is revealed! A real oedipal twist. Clips include the young

teenage Darin on a Jackie Gleason musical variety show reading the lines right off the palm of his hand as he sings his heart out are legendary.
