Preview- The Buddy Holly Story (Bluray)

The Buddy Holly Story is one of the best biopics ever produced for cinema and features 12 of Holly’s greatest hit songs. It won the 1978 Academy Award for Best Score Adaptation with Gary Busey giving an electrifying , Oscar nominated performance as Holly. The film is a dynamic tribute to one of the most influential rock ‘n’ rollers of all time. It also stars Don Stroud, Charles Martin Smith, Conrad Janis and Paul Mooney.

 The film follows Holly’s life, from growing up in Texas, to his early hit records, his quick national fame, his performances on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” his marriage and then his tragic untimely death.

Young Buddy’s studious appearance gave no hint of his style of ‘new music’ which was about to take the world by storm. His unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll was pivotal in the genre’s birth and catapulted him and The Crickets to national stardom in just three short years with hits such as “That’ll Be The Day” and “Peggy Sue”.

Holly was only 22 years old when he died in a plane crash on February 3rd 1959 along with Ritchie Valens, and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson. A week after his death, “It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” went to No 1 in the UK, the first instance of a record becoming a hit after an artist’s death. The day of the plane crash later became known as “The Day the Music Died”, after Don McLean referred to it as such in his 1971 song American Pie.

Holly laid the foundations for a generation of popular music with his ground-breaking combination of country, rock and rhythm & blues. Bob Dylan has credited Buddy Holly as an early inspiration. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were inspired to play, sing, and write their own songs by Holly. The Beatles paid homage to The Crickets by choosing an insect name for their band and The Rolling Stones’ first American release was Holly’s “Not Fade Away.”

Paul McCartney bought the copyright to Holly’s published songs in 1977 and used to hold an annual “Buddy Holly Birthday Party” in New York.

Extras: Audio Commentary with director Steve Rash and actor Gary Busey / Original Theatrical Trailer / Play film with isolated score track.
