They called it the devil's music. To this Jerry Lee Lewis whooped: "If I'm going to hell, I'm going there playing the piano!" Dennis Quaid gives a "rousing performance" (Gene Shalit, The Today Show) as the defiant rock 'n' roll superstar who broke all the rules. Co-starring Winona Ryder as Jerry Lee's teenage bride and Alec Baldwin as his evangelical cousin Jimmy Swaggart, and featuring scorching piano and vocals re-recorded by the legendary Lewis himself, Great Balls Of Fire! is a wild ride back to the early days of rock 'n' roll that will leave you "B-B-B-Breathless."!
In 1956, Louisiana bad boy Jerry Lee Lewis (Quaid) moves to Memphis, determined to dethrone Elvis with his "ferocious God-given talent." When Jerry Lee bangs out the bass chords with his feet, fans howl for more. When he finishes a performance by setting his piano ablaze, they mob the stage. But when he marries his 13-year-old second cousin Myra (Ryder)... the scandal nearly kills "The Killer's" career.
