Arch Hall Jr !



Arch Hall Jr. is a teen actor and musician who appeared in a number of 1960s films, all of which were produced by his father, Arch Hall Sr.
Most of Arch Hall Jr.'s films feature his musical abilities, particularly a teenage tenor and swamp blues inflected, guitar riffs. Hall was also the frontman for the rock n' roll combo Arch Hall Jr. and the Archers. The band played Sunset Strip clubs such as the Whisky a Go Go and Pandora's Box.
For the most part the films produced by the Halls and their associates, which at one point included cult director Ray Dennis Steckler, are considered B-movies (which means, religion to me).
My fav of course is The Sadist (1963), where Hall portrayed a psychopathic killer based in part on teenage murderer Charles Starkweather.
YEAH !

My wife and I were just watching Eegah! the other night. Amazing hair on Arch Hall, Jr., but my wife noticed that once Roxie shaved the caveman, old Eegah was better looking than the supposed teen hearthrob.

You strike again Tom, always a fave around here Arch was the ultimate Indie artist. They tried it all, & they're all classic, & somewhat alive & well, "Sadist" & "Eegah" what a double feature!!!

Ah, The Sadist is one of my favorite movies of all time. Gotta get that one out and watch it soon.

Love that version of "Watch Your Step".
