Eddie and the Cruisers


Remember "On the Dark Side"? "Tender Years"? 1983's Eddie and the Cruisers was inescapable on HBO and in newly opening video shops in the 1980s as VCRs became popular. Those with fond memories of the hit John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band soundtrack may not know that Eddie was based on one of the greatest rock 'n' roll novels ever. Join author P. F. Kluge as we watch the movie and then discuss the differences between the screen and the page. Many thanks to the Capri Theatre for joining the Alabama Book Festival to put a boppin' new spin on the joys of reading!
