The Idolmaker on Blu-Ray

By DAVID WEINER

August 27, 2013

The Golden Globe-winning cult musical from 1980 is now on Blu-ray! In this fast-paced, compelling look at the music industry during the 1960s, Ray Sharkey plays Vincent Vacarri, aka The Idolmaker, a music promoter and manager who is obsessively driven by his desire to discover the next big act. After transforming a popular saxophone player (Paul Land) into rock 'n' roll sensation "Tommy Dee," Vinnie becomes obsessed with his next big hit, a local busboy named Guido (Peter Gallagher), and embarks on a destructive journey to control every aspect of his new act's image -- a journey that might end up destroying everyone around him.
