Movie Info

Some may find the rabid devotion of Rick Springfield's fans perplexing, but if his 17 Top 40 hits, including "Jessie's Girl", or his run on General Hospital as Dr. Noah Drake didn't convince you, watching him blast out live performances with straight-on charisma and spontaneously dropping in on fans most certainly will.
