Audience Reviews for Wild Guitar


Wild Guitar is super cheesy and features acting that truly makes you wonder how these people got to be on the silver screen while so many talented thespians remain obscure. Arch Hall Jr. has a charisma that keeps me entertained yet smirking at the ludicrous delivery. I do enjoy the music in here. "Valerie" was such a jam that it was also in Eegah.

Arch Hall Jr.! Ray Dennis Steckler! Nancy Czar (Steckler's wife at the time, and a former stripper)! Cheesy rock n roll! What's not to love? But my favorite element is Cash Flagg (Steckler)'s performance as the sharp-dressin', switchblade-totin' Steak. Yeh-yeh!

I know its silly, but the lead actor is one of the nicest guys I've ever had the pleasure of rooting for in a film.
