The theatre release was in 1989 and follows the career of “rockability” pioneer singer, piano, music recording star, Jerry Lee Lewis. Actor Dennis Quaid became proficient in playing the piano in the style that Lewis did. Winona Ryder plays his young wife Myra in the film. Until his tour in England, Lewis was heading to become a bigger singer than Elvis Presley. However, in England on tour, it came out he was married to a 13 year old. As a result, his career took a huge nose dive. Lewis’s alcoholism did not help. The music is lively and Quaid does a great job of portraying Lewis. The film was shot in multiple southern states and has one the best musical movie lines: “I’m not going to hell; I am going to play piano”.
