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}

At Least I Know Now I Wasn't Dreaming...
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, this movie DOES actually exist after all! I've tried searching the title for years in various film guides to no avail. For some strange reason, "Some People" showed up at our local theater in Dover, NH sometime in either 1964 or 1965 and I saw it with a bunch of my 12 year old buddies. All I can remember is a scene where a teenager is sitting in a bathtub with a pair of jeans on to get that "form fit" we were all looking for back then, and the lyrics to the theme song "some people think that kids today have gone astray, but they don't know the kids the way I do," have stayed in my head for 44 years. I'm a once and future "British Invasion" junkie and was probably hoping that the movie would feature some of my current favorites such as the Searchers, Hollies, Honeycombs, Manfred Mann, Animals, etc., but I guess it was more along the lines of "That'll Be The Day," which covers the era immediately preceding "beat" music hitting it big in the States. Anyhoodle, I would like to thank the IMDb crew and all who commented on this forgotten classic (?) for restoring faith in my own sanity. If anyone out there would like to discuss music from this era, I'm more than ready to comply.
