    Product Details

    That'll Be The Day is a nostalgic trip back to the late 1950s, time of brothel-creeper shoes, drainpipe trousers, sideburns and greased back hair. David Essex makes his screen debut as wayward hero Jim MacLaine, who lives a life of dead-end jobs and one-night-stands and dreams of becoming a rock star. Ringo Starr, as his fairground buddy, epitomizes the period and is joined by Billy Fury and Keith Moon in a living tapestry of memories for rock fans. Stardust sees hero Jim (Essex) now enjoying the nomadic 'gigs and groupies' life of The Stray Cats (with band mates Paul Nicholas, Keith Moon, Dave Edmunds and Karl Howman). When he achieves all his wildest dreams of international stardom, the sweet taste of success begins to turn sour, reflecting the tragic days when the pressures proved too great for many talented musicians of the 1960s. Directed by Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough), the film won the Writer's Guild Award for Best British Original Screenplay. Adam Faith co-stars as the Stray Cats' manager.
