But so short.........By KenS (83 reviews) from London , 19 Jun 2008This is a very enjoyable re-creation of the early days of R&R. Good cast, who I believed performed the the songs themselves, and a nice period setting. Gary Busey, who very much leads the film as well as the Crickets, does a remarkable job and manages to be convincing when performing the songs and stage act. Is there a strong physical likeness too? There is so little footage of the real Buddy Holly it's hard to tell, but he sure inhabits the part. Okay. so something about the movie so agitated Paul McCartney that he went out and made his own rebuttal, but I wonder which movie did more for the popularity of this great music!
