Film Details

A.K.A. Doc Pomus

Canada, United States | 2012 | William Hechter, Peter Miller

A.K.A. Doc Pomus

This acclaimed film profiles one of the least known major figures in early rock ‘n’ roll. Doc Pomus (reputedly the inspiration for John Goodman’s character in Inside Llewyn Davis) was born Jerome Felder in Brooklyn and, despite being partially paralyzed from polio, became a blues singer and then a brilliant songwriter of such hits as “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “This Magic Moment,” and many more. In this film enlivened by music and archival imagery, famous friends remember him and Lou Reed reads from Doc’s private journals. “Vital and endearing, a celebration of a great artist, a great character, and the universality of great pop.” –Village Voice.
