Directed by Steve Rash | 1978

With Gary Busey, Charles Martin Smith, Don Stroud, Conrad Janis, William Jordan

“Conveys a real, raw feeling for the music… Streets ahead of most rock celluloid”
—Time Out London

Buddy Holly goes from Texas teen to horn-rimmed superstar in this immensely appealing biopic, which turns 35 this year. Busey was nominated for an Oscar for this remarkably lived-in performance highlighting the likeable gawkiness of the rock ‘n’ roll pioneer whose career was cut tragically short.
