WITH "JERSEY BOYS" CLINT EASTWOOD CHALLENGES CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS TO "WALK LIKE A MAN"

From his lifetime of work with jazz legends / composers Lalo Schifrin and Jerry Fielding, to BIRD and THELONIOUS MONK: STRAIGHT NO CHASER and more, Clint Eastwood has emerged as cinema maestro in honoring America's popular musical art forms. Now with the underrated JERSEY BOYS he veers into the volatile personal harmony and disharmony behind the rise of rock and roll legends Frankie Va...lli & The Four Seasons. More than a review of the film itself, Steve Vertlieb's blunt and penetrating mini-essay sees Eastwood's latest gem as a microcosmic commentary on the current pop music state-of-the-art in general, and the decline of the American musical (and modern music craft) in particular. Includes trailer, film clips and music excerpts.

The Gull Cottage/Sandlot Films website in which this article appears is among the most lovingly maintained of any film related destination on the internet.  The site was created by writer/director Craig Jamison ("The Man Who "Saved" The Movies" documentary) and is a genuine treasure trove of informed, skillfully designed motion picture archival history.  Any visit there will be well worth your time.
