Britain’s first major teen idol is the subject of this documentary. Labelled as Britain’s answer to Elvis, Fury stormed the charts, lived fast and died young.
Billy Fury became an overnight music sensation in the late 1950 s when his moody brand of rock and roll earned him the nickname of Britain s Elvis . Fury s stage performances and sexual charisma left his female fans screaming for more. He was Britain s original teen idol and had more top 40 hits than the Beatles during the 1960 s. Hits such as Halfway to Paradise; Jealousy; Maybe Tomorrow; Wondrous Place; A Thousand Stars; In Thoughts of You and many others have ensured Fury s place in pop history, despite his tragically short career. For the first time ever, Billy Fury s musical biography is now available on this magnificent full-length DVD along with a soundtrack of hits from his Decca career. His Wondrous Story highlights the early days of British rock and roll and Fury s dominance of the British pop scene. The programme features archive performance footage and interviews with Fury s family and contemporaries including Sir Jimmy Savile; Alvin Stardust; Vince Eager; Michael Winner; Paul Gambaccini; John Leyton and Clem Cattini.
