It's the same old faces: Melvin Hayes, Richard O' Sullivan et al, playing the same old parts they play in other films and onstage. It also displays why these types of shows were nosed out of sight by the all-swallowing rock and roll. The plot is hardly deserving of the word plot.
Gutbucket Robert Morley beats up some thugs with a few judo moves and puffs his way through a simple dance routine. As in Cliff Richard's earlier film,Expresso Bongo, The Shadows sidestep off with all the honours. At the time this film was made, the Shadows, led by their charismatic blond bass player, and with Tony Meehan on drums, were at their peak. Their version of The Savage is the best thing about this film.
