Not the Best but still great
23 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its shameful how people can just write off Billy Fury OK the film itself wouldn't earn an Oscar for being original or clever but as a snapshot of what was going on in the British music screen it has an English charm OK the acting is not up to par ( although directed by the now acclaimed Michael Winner - his first feature film here ) however BILLY FURY at that stage in his career WAS NOT a copy of Elvis and definitely not a --SPASTIC BOBBY DARIN - NO WAY

he was an established artist a singer with great sounds / voice and stage presence and was just doing what every star of there day - including Elvis with his many a same plot film - going onto the big screen.

Helen Shapiro was OK ,and like Bobby Vee in 2006 still going strong .

the film PLAY IT COOL is a piece of little history and should not be dismissed neither disrespected of the late great BILLY FURY

keep on rockin
