ARCH HALL, JR. - MOVIE STAR!
EEGAH! (1961) Classic caveman falls in love story complete with rock n' roll, cars and girls! Stars Richard Kiel as the lovelorn giant caveman!
WILD GUITAR (1962) The ultimate rock n' roll plot. Country boy Bud Eagle (Arch Jr.) heads for Hollywood where devious bizwig Mike McCauley (Arch Sr.) makes him a star with the help of blade-wielding Steak (Ray Dennis Steckler). Five star film!
THE SADIST (1963) Superb psycho chiller with Arch as deraged sociopath Charlie Tibbs hell bent on making people very, very nervous. Story borrows from Charlie Starkweather story, with shocking realistic portrayal by Arch.
NASTY RABBIT (1964) This spy spoof serves up an international bevy of do-badders including the ravishing Liz Renay as a buxotic secret agent using her wiley ways against Arch Jr, the handsome guitar-slinging good guy spy! Arch Sr. stars as Russian no-goodnik! The Archers are great on stage and so are Pat & Lolly Vegas and band! Glorious color!
DEADWOOD '76 (1964) Arch Jr. teams up with Liz Renay for his final film appearance! This western drama is beautifully filmed and draws heavily from Arch Sr.'s early days as a bona fide Dakota Days and his own film career in Westerns.
