'Let's hope they don't turn this effort into the unfunny travesty the so-called Buddy Holly Story was.'

I wouldn't have high expectations. Movies are economic products made to put bums on seats and precise adherence to factual detail is secondary.

Much would depend on the quality of research. Who will they use? They could do worse than talk to David Bigham who, with the Roses, worked with Orbison and recorded with him at the Norman Petty studio. What would be the chances, I wonder, of using the studio as a set (assuming that this part of Orbison's life is depicted)
