That'll Be the Day/Stardust - Rock On!,
This review is from: That'll Be The Day/Stardust [DVD]  (DVD)An excellent double bill, though be mindful of the 15 cert - it portrays the groupie lifestyle in some detail! That'll be the Day captures the feel of the 50's and 60's perfectly and David Essex plays the part of Jim Maclaine very well - though he does gradually turn into 'David Essex' as the film moves on. Great cameos from Ringo Starr, Rory Storm, Keith Moon and others give this film a real authenticity - and the music's great.
Stardust portrays sex drugs and rock'n'roll to excess with great performances from Essex and Adam Faith replacing Ringo as his sidekick (Starr apparently turned it down as it was too reminiscent of his own spell in a well known group in the sixties!). Great original music produced by Dave Edmunds who also appears with, again, cameos from Keith Moon, Paul Nicholas and, erm, Peter Duncan. Larry Hagman puts in a great pre-JR performance as a very convincing manipulative manager.
Overall a great three hours of nostalgia, fun and great music. Buy it!!
