Gary Busey stars in The Buddy Holly Story.

A relatively normal Gary Busey (Insignificance) stars in the 1978 music-filled bio-pic The Buddy Holly Story, making its Blu-ray debut from Twilight Time.

Directed by Steve Rash, the movie sketches the tale of the rock-and-roll legend Buddy Holly (Busey), a Texas boy whose musical imagination changed the face of popular music. Busey and his on-screen bandmates (Charles Martin Smith, Don Stroud) played and sang Holly’s landmark songs (including “That’ll Be the Day,” “Maybe Baby,” “Peggy Sue,” and “Not Fade Away”) live for the film, which won an Academy Award for Joe Renzetti for Best Musical Score Adaptation.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, the time to order your Blu-ray discs directly from distributor Screen Archives is Now!

Hazel (Woodley) and Gus (Elgort) are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. Although the two teens face unlikely challenges, their »

Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg take a dip in the Trevi Fountain in La Dolce Vita.

The biggest hit from the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, 1960’s La Dolce Vita rocketed Federico Fellini (The Clowns) to international mainstream success—ironically, by offering a damning critique of the culture of stardom.

A look at the darkness beneath the seductive lifestyles of Rome’s rich and glamorous, the film follows a notorious celebrity journalist—played by a sublimely cool Marcello Mastroianni (The 10th Victim)—during a hectic week spent on the peripheries of the spotlight.

La Dolce Vita was an incisive commentary on the deepening decadence of the European 1960s, and it provided a prescient glimpse of just how gossip- and fame-obsessed our society would become.
