Vince Spano: The Teen Idol Years

The image I mentioned in the above post is the photo above of a 17 year old Spano, along with Lisa Whelchel his co-star in the 1979 film The Double McGuffin. During much of the 80's, Spano was a fixture and pin-up sensation in teen mags. Spano worked steadily through the 80's highlighted by his role in the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola directed adaptation of S.E. Hinton's novel Rumble Fish. Here is a look at Spano from this time period.

Some Spano pin-ups!

Rumble Fish (1983)

Spano and Rumble Fish co-stars Matt Dillon, Nicolas Cage, Chris Penn and Laurence Fishburne. Rumble Fish is one of the only Dillon films from the 80's and 90's I have not seen. I must check it out!
