Rock n Roll Outlaw is a documentary profile of Myles Connor, one of Boston’s first rock stars, who performed with Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, The Beach Boys, and many more.
 
But Myles Connor was also one of America’s most notorious criminals. He masterminded over 30 museum heists while maintaining a career as a popular rock n roll singer. He broke out of jail in Ellsworth, Maine using a soap gun and was involved in a roof-top gun battle in Boston’s Back Bay in which he was shot 4 times. He was framed for murder and later exonerated and spent 20 years of his life in prison for crimes he did and did not commit.
 
Rock n Roll Outlaw contains over 50 interviews and extensive archival visual assets such as newspaper headlines, advertisements, photographs, and film and video footage. Key story elements such as vintage concert sequences, gun battle and jail break sequences, and many other story arcs were reenacted. The soundtrack consists entirely of recording chronicling Myles’ music career. The story’s final act is a stunner! We follow Myles Connor into the recording studio as he creates his first music in over 40 years and attempts to redeem his reputation through rock n roll.
 
Parts of this film were shot on location at the old jail and The Grand here in downtown Ellsworth.
 
There will be a Q&A with the filmmaker, Myles Connor & others and a live concert with Myles and The Ian Black Band.
