“AKA DOC POMUS”

Paralyzed with polio as a child, Jerome Felder renamed himself Doc Pomus, reinventing himself first as a blues singer and then as one of music’s greatest songwriters, writing popular classics like, “Save the Last Dance for Me,” “This Magic Moment,” “A Teenager in Love,” and “Viva Las Vegas.” AKA DOC POMUS brings to life Doc’s joyous, romantic, heartbreaking, and extraordinarily eventful journey.
Peter Miller and Will Hechter / Canada/USA / English / 98 min
