Plot.

The story of Jerry Lee Lewis, arguably the greatest and certainly one of the craziest musicians of the 1950s, is told here. His arrogance, remarkable talent, and unconventional lifestyle brought him into conflict with others in the industry, and even earned him the disdain and condemnation of the public.

Cast & Crew.

Wiki.

Great Balls of Fire! is a 1989 American biographical film directed by Jim McBride and starring Dennis Quaid as rockabilly pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis. Based on a biography by Myra Lewis and Murray M. Silver Jr., the screenplay is written by McBride and Jack Baran. The film is produced by Adam Fields, with executive producers credited as Michael Grais, Mark Victor, and Art Levinson.The early career of Jerry Lee Lewis, from his rise to rock and roll stardom to his controversial marriage to his 13-year-old cousin that led to his downfall, is depicted in the film. Until the scandal of the marriage depreciated his image, many had thought Lewis would supplant Elvis Presley as the "King of Rock and Roll" in the 1950s.
