This film was made on the cusp of a cultural revolution.Particularly in relation to music.At the time this film was made rock and roll was king.There were the mods and the rockers who would go down to Brighton and have a pitched battle.Ted Heath and his orchestra feature in the film.Dance bands which had held sway for over 30 years were fading away as we're the dance halls they played in.Much of the fashions shown and music heard in this film would very shortly disappear.The film is a crime drama with comedy and music.The Jazz boat of the title only appears in the last half hour of the film.Anthony Newley is rather good in the lead role and Bernie Winters is quite funny.Lionel Jefferies plays archetypal role but David Lodge is almost unrecognizable.
