A documentary about Jerome Felder, aka Doc Pomus, an unlikely rock & roll star. Paralyzed with polio as a child and brought up in a typical New York Jewish household, he reinvented himself first as a blues singer then as one of the most prolific songwriters of all time. With hits like, Save the Last Dance for Me, This Magic Moment, A Teenager in Love, Viva Las Vegas, Doc left a lasting impression on the early rock and roll era. Amy Linton, editor and associate producer of the film, will lead a Q & A after the screening. Optional Dessert Reception 7:30 pm
