American writer/director Martin Davidson is best known for period films such as his 1983 cult hit movie "Eddie and the Cruisers." He is a Brooklyn native who attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and acted in off-Broadway shows for several years. His directorial debut was the 1950s story "The Lords of Flatbush," a film he also co-wrote. Starring Henry Winkler and Sylvester Stallone, the 1974 film was set in Davidson's native Brooklyn. He followed that up with the 1978 comedy "Almost Summer" and the John Ritter romantic comedy "Hero at Large." "Eddie and the Cruisers," starring Tom Berenger, was another period film, set in 1964, about a fictional rock band. Davidson also directed several TV movies, including "Long Gone," an HBO film about a minor league baseball team that won an ACE Award. In the '90s he directed episodes of TV shows like "Picket Fences" and the medical drama "Chicago Hope," but only rarely directed theatrical films. Almost a decade passed between his 1991 romantic comedy "Hard Promises" and "Looking for an Echo," a nostalgic film about an oldies singing group that is his last film to date.
