Allan Arkush on

Get Crazy

Released 1983
Distributor Embassy Picture

Director Allan Arkush gives us the lowdown behind his film maudit, an underappreciated and certainly underseen followup to Rock N’ Roll High School which seems to have been deliberately buried by its producers despite a hip and happening cast. The distributor’s attention to detail is amply demonstrated by this awful trailer which bills writer Danny Opatashu under the name of his actor father David.

About Allan Arkush

A record collector and film buff from his early days, Allan Arkush brought his two loves together in directing the cult classic Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Allan’s day job is directing and executive producing television series like Heroes, The Client List and Crossing Jordan.  He has also directed episodes of Ally McBeal, Moonlighting and many other tv series as well as the mini-series, The Temptations, for which he won an Emmy. He wishes that someone would release his 1997 Showtime movie Elvis Meets Nixon on DVD.
