It could have gone either way, but Telstar, the story of maverick early 60s producer Joe Meek, was actually really well received when it hit the cinemas. So the DVD of Telstar should be fairly popular.
As you might expect, it covers the rapid rise to fame, his unique brand of 60s pop, early 60s London, madness, depression, bizarre studio equipment, heartbreak, paranoia, murder and suicide, not to mention drugs and the occult.
The DVD release also throws in a documentary (Telstar: An Inside Look), additional scenes, extended performance clips and the trailer. Amazon is doing pre-orders right now for under £10, the release date is September 28th 2009.
