"Great Balls of Fire" (Dennis Quaid as Jerry Lee Lewis 1989) Play

The story of Jerry Lee Lewis, arguably the greatest and certainly one of the wildest musicians of the 1950s. His arrogance, remarkable talent, and unconventional lifestyle often brought him into conflict with others in the industry, and even earned him the scorn and condemnation of the public. From the early career of Jerry Lee Lewis, his rise to rock 'n' roll stardom and movies, and the controversial marriage to his 13-year-old cousin that led to his downfall, all 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.
