|Plot Summary of Wild Guitar|
Bud, a naive singer travels to L.A. to be a star. He meets a girl, Vickie, who invites him to go with her to an amateur variety type show. When one of the acts gets sick, Bud is allowed to go on in his place.
The audience loves Bud. Mike, a manager, agrees to sign Bud and turn him into a star. Not long into their relationship Bud becomes a star, but Mike is the only one making money.
Bud threatens to leave, but Mike tricks him in to staying long enough to pay off his supposed debts. However, after a visit from one of Mike's former clients, Bud becomes wise to Mike's plan. With the help of his brother, Bud tricks Mike. He records a conversation where he gets Mike to admit that he cheated him.
Instead of turning him in, Bud gives Mike another chance because in spite of everything he's still a smart businessman. They make a deal to continue their partnership as fair and legal equal partners.
