Summary
Biographical film about the rock 'n' roll singer called "Killer", Jerry Lee Lewis. The film covers the period when he moved to Memphis to further his career. His barrelhouse rhythm and blues piano playing and raucous singing led to a string of hits, but his marriage to his 13-year-old cousin all but killed his career
