This is the true story of Ritchie Valens, a young rock and roll singer who tragically died in a plane crash at age 17. The film follows Ritchie from his days in Pacoima, California where he and his family make a meager living working on farms to his rise as a star. The film also focuses on Ritchie's friendship and rivalry with his older brother Bob Morales and his relationship with Donna Ludwig, his girlfriend. Written by

The Cowboy Palace in Chatsworth, California was where Ritchie Valens was very nervous about the reception he'd receive from an Anglo crowd. The bar is still in business and was used for the film. See more »
On the plane trip to Philadelphia when drinks are served they are in a clear plastic glass not manufactured until the mid-1970s. In fact airlines of the 1950s used the real thing, usually etched with their logo. Even the dinnerware was real then. See more »

La Bamba is one of the movies that makes you feel good,cry and think about how life really is short. Lou Diamond Phillps was in top form as Richie Valens who never got the chance to show us what he could do. I'm not really a Rock & Roll fan but this is a good movie and one hat brings a tear every time I watch it.
