A load of bull
28 May 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

There was a time when Tommy Steele was a rock and roll singer.However it is clear that by time this film was made he had already softened that image to more middle of the road,where he would find long term success.He is one of the numerous popular stars of that era who tried and failed to have a successful film career.He joins a long list of failures,such as Morecambe & Wise,Charlie Drake and Spike Milligsn.Despite a pretty decent cast and the name of Talbot Rothwell as one one of the scriptwriters,this film never gets off the ground.The songs are mediocre,though Steele had a hit with "little whit bull".The climax at the bullfighting is truly awful in every way.The producers should have been thrown to the lions.
