The Idolmaker

Music producer and songwriter Vincent Vacarri (Ray Sharkey) believes that it takes good looks, not talent, to become a teen idol in 1950s America. So when he discovers handsome-faced Tomaso (Paul Land), he sweet-talks him into losing his saxophone and instead becoming a singer. Soon after, Tomaso is transformed into the newest pop star -- Tommy Dee. But when Vacarri takes on a second protégé, Caesare (Peter Gallagher), the rivalry between the two egotistical performers spirals out of control.
