Paul Land in The Idolmaker

The Idolmaker

1980 PG

Loosely based on the life of rock promoter Bob Marucci, this film follows Vincent Vacarri (Ray Sharkey), a charismatic music fan who becomes a successful producer. Vacarri's tenacity pays off when he discovers the Fabian-like singer Caesare (Peter Gallagher) in his feature debut. The film marks director Taylor Hackford's first time behind the camera and the movie debut of Joe Pantoliano, who plays Vacarri's abused but loyal songwriting partner.
