The teen rock 'n' roller (played by Arch Hall, Jr.) in the low budget 1962 cult film Wild Guitar. He sings "Vicki" and "Twist Fever," which in actuality were performed by the actor and his band Arch Hall and the Archers.

South Dakota kid Eagle comes to Los Angeles and gets a lucky break that gets him hooked in by unscrupulous manager Mike McCauley (played by Arch Hall, Jr's actual dad, Arch Hall, Sr.!), who keeps all his money. Eagle and his girlfriend finally get him to admit it while secretly taping him; then use the tape to blackmail him into being a better agent!
