AKA DOC POMUS at the GRJC Film Series
AKA Doc Pomus is the story of Brooklyn-born and Jewish-raised Jerome Felder. Though paralyzed with polio and confined to a wheelchair, Felder reinvented himself as a blues singer and later emerged as one of the most brilliant songwriters of the early rock and roll era, writing classics known and loved by millions world-wide -- "Save the Last Dance for Me" -- "This Magic Moment" -- "Teenager in Love" -- "Viva Las Vegas" -- and dozens of other classics. He wrote over a thousand songs, recorded by artists from Elvis Presley, to Ray Charles, to Bob Dylan, to Bruce Springsteen, to just about everyone else.

The film's director, Peter Miller (Jews In Baseball: An American Love Story), will return to the GRJC to talk about Doc Pomus, his music and the many musicians and personalities he met while reconstructing the story of this great American songwriter. This powerful film introduces this unique Jewish-American character to a new, wider circle of admirers, so join us for what promises to be a great event!
