MOVIE RELEASED ON THIS DAY IN 1978


The Buddy Holly Story
is a 1978 biographical film which tells the life story
of rock icon Buddy Holly.  It features an Academy Awardwinning musical
score, adapted by Joe Renzetti and Oscarnominated lead performance
by Gary Busey. It was adapted by Robert Gittler from Buddy Holly: His
Life and Music
, the biography of Holly by John Goldrosen, and was
directed by Steve Rash
.

The film received many positive reviews from critics and fans alike, but
Holly authorities and other music scholars criticized what they deemed
gross inaccuracies in the plot. The Crickets, after watching the film,
appreciated it but gave a thumbs down on their portrayal, calling it
"horrible" due to many reasons.

 

 


William Gary Busey will be 72 on June 29.
