Movieing On #170: The Buddy Holly Story

38 mins - Published Mon, Nov 30, 2015 by Breki Tomasson, Rachel Wake and Toerag

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.

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.

If you want to get in touch with the people behind the episode or talk to others who like it, feel free to join the CSICONauts chat room. Alternatively, you can find some of this episode's hosts and/or guests on Twitter: Breki Tomasson and Toerag.
