Storyline

In 1960's Bristol three lads hang around making nuisances of themselves after losing their motorbike licences. Their only other interest is playing rock-and-roll so they welcome the offer from a supportive churchwarden of the use of his church hall. Things go well - with several new members including strong-voiced Terry, sort-of one of their girlfriends, they don't sound bad at all - and one of the guys starts dating the churchwarden's daughter. But his mate is increasingly suspicious that they are being sucked into behaving in a conventional way acceptable to the older generation. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

It was on this film that Kenneth More, hitherto one of Britain's most well-liked film stars, met Angela Douglas, who was 26 years his junior and who became his third wife some years later, after he had obtained a much-publicized and long-contested divorce. The bad publicity resulting from this did great damage to More's standing in British films. See more »

Saw it last night for the first time - fantastic!
9 January 2008 | by (Bristol) – See all my reviews

I heard of this film from my brother-in-law basically because it was filmed in my home city. I thought it was fantastic, with all the scenes of Bristol before I was born. It was great fun trying to guess where it was filmed. Clifton, Filton, probably Patchway, Broadmead (but which store?), City centre, Totterdown, The Downs, The Portway and the now re-built bus station. Kenneth More is brilliant as ever. It might have been a bit corny but not as bad as a Cliff film. I purchased a DVD of it off ebay (not great quality as it had been transferred from video) and really enjoyed it. When will it be available on DVD in all its remastered glory?
