That’ll Be the Day is a 1973 British film starring David Essex and Ringo Starr, written by Ray Connolly and directed by Claude Whatham. It is set in the late ’50s/early ’60s and was partially filmed on the Isle of Wight.
Many of the characters were played by musicians who had lived through the era portrayed in the film including Ringo Starr of The Hurricanes and The Beatles, Billy Fury of The Hurricanes, Keith Moon of The Who, and John Hawken of The Nashville Teens.
That’ll Be The Day consisted of very early mornings and very late nights, it seemed that the musical world descended on the Isle Of Wight where we filmed it for jam sessions and partying. Making the film was a great experience and lots of fun.
