Buddy Holly Story, The (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
The Buddy Holly Story (1978) sketches the tale of the rock-and-roll legend, a Texas boy (combustively incarnated by a super-charged, Oscar®-nominated Gary Busey) whose musical imagination changed the face of popular music.  Busey and his on-screen bandmates (Charles Martin Smith, Don Stroud) played and sang Holly’s landmark songs (including “That’ll Be the Day,” “Maybe Baby,” “Peggy Sue,” and “Not Fade Away”) live for the film, which won an Academy Award® for Joe Renzetti for Best Musical Score Adaptation.
