Deadman's Curve (1978)


Richard Compton    


Paul Morantz (story),  Dalene Young    


Richard HatchBruce DavisonWolfman Jack
Deadman's Curve is a made-for-TV biography concerning "California sound" rock-n-rollers Jan and Dean. Richard Hatch plays Jan Berry, while Bruce Davison is seen as Dean Torrence. The meat of the story is Jan's grueling efforts to fully recover from a disastrous 1966 auto accident. The film's most powerful scene occurs when the still-shaky Jan attempts a concert comeback, only to be booed offstage when the audience realizes that he's lip-synching. First telecast February 3, 1978, Deadman's Curve is seasoned with cameo appearances by Dick Clark, Wolfman Jack, and Beach Boys Mike Love and Bruce Johnson.

  1. Hard to find movie now in my collection 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 20th 2020

    I've looked for this movie for years, as I'm a huge fan of Jan and Dean. I was able to find it once, but for about four times the price I got it on Zeus. There's a couple of times there's a little snow in the movie; like when you used those old converters to transfer a VHS movie to a DVD. Doesn't detract from the movie and I'm very glad I made the purchase.
    As to the movie itself, it's a great depiction of the duo's rise to fame, and subsequent collapse once Jan is severely injured in a car accident.

  2. Good Movie 4 Star Review

    Posted by on May 1st 2016

    Deadman's Curve, about the lives of Jan & Dean is a great movie about their lives. Some of the events in the movie were changed but most is true. Jan was a personal friend and was one of the kindest people that I have met as was his family. It shows the brotherly bond that the two had with each other and how Dean took over the lead and helped to protect Jan after the accident.
