From 1961 through '65, Van Nuys native Archibald Hall, Sr., attempted to help his son, Arch, Jr., make the jump from musical artist to movie star. The effort met with a modicum of success, as some seven movies in various genres served as B-movie drive-in fare and are remembered yet today by fans of cult films and artists. Among his roles, the films cast Junior as the leader of a teen car-theft gang running a clandestine chop shop for illicit dough, an international spy, a psychopath, a hero battling to rescue his girlfriend from a formerly freeze-dried caveman and, of course, a rock-n-roll star. After his foray into film, Arch became a successful airline pilot, cargo flyer and author. Now retired from flying, Arch is well, active and is still in his 60s.

Junkyard owner Moose shells out long green for car parts jocked by the light-fingered JDs. At 16, Hall, right, played "Cruiser" Bryan. Is it just ME, or are the boys boosting a '51 Frazer???
