Buddy Holly laid the foundations for a generation of popular music with his ground-breaking combination of country music and rhythm & blues. This film tells his story from its explosive beginning to its tragic end with Gary Busey giving an electrifying, Oscar nominated performance (Best Actor - 1978) as the young genius from Lubbock, Texas, who changed the tune of rock ‘n’ roll history.
Young Buddy’s studious appearance gave no hint of the ‘new music’ which was about to take the world by storm. His unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll 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".
Despite opposition from the mainly redneck Texas community, his mother who nagged him to get a proper job and his girlfriend who wanted to tame him - by the age of 22, Holly had it all, but the trials and tribulations of fame began to take it’s toll and his brilliant career ended in tragedy all too quickly.
The Buddy Holly Story is one of the best biopics ever produced for cinema and features 12 of his greatest hit songs as well as winning the 1978 Academy Award™ for Best Score Adaptation. It’s a dynamic tribute to one of the most influential rock ‘n’ rollers of all time and his legacy.
