Possibly the best Steele movie
5 February 2007 | by (Blackpool England) – See all my reviews

The film is well in the tradition of the classic Hollywood movie-a totally silly plot and great production numbers. Steele comes across as a convincing personality and unlike some of the Elvis musicals of the time he's not plugging his current single and in fact no one else is either. Marion Ryan performs a song which had no commercial possibilities being an extended production number on the lines of Sinatra's High Hopes and some of the other minor stars supposedly signed by EMI such as Dick Kallman and Johnny de Little never came to anything. Carole Deene appeared on a beach in the longest production number which also featured the stars of the George Mitchell Minstrels and this was one of the real highlights as the action switched from an office to a park.

Today a musical of such innocence couldn't exist but I would certainly rather watch one like this than Grease or Dirty Dancing In 1962 Tommy Steele recorded a version of Brook Benton's Hit Record which failed completely but was the kind of bragging song made in the 70s by David Essex ("Gonna make you a star").It would have served very well in this movie!
