Movieing On #170: The Buddy Holly Story

This week on Movieing On, Breki Tomasson sits down with Dr. Toerag and Rachel to talk about the 1978 Buddy Holly Biopic, The Buddy Holly Story. They discuss whether or not it's a good idea to portray a person's life in such a matter-of-fact way, whether this might be a documentary or not and what makes for a good biopic. They also discuss the obvious elephant in the room - Gary Busey.
