Eddie and the Cruisers

In the early 1960's, Eddie Wilson (Michael Pare) and his band, The Cruisers, enjoyed a brief fling with success, but their career came to a halt when Eddie's badly damaged car was discovered in an accident on a bridge. However, Eddie's body was never found, and years later, a reissue of the group's only album sparks rumors that the mysterious Eddie might still be alive. This song-filled drama about the search for the truth about Eddie co-stars Tom Berenger and Ellen Barkin. "Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives!" (1989) is the sequel.
