Typical Rock 'n' Roll movie, a few year late!
5 February 1999 | by (West Yorkshire, UK) – See all my reviews

From the plot you would expect a potboiler of a film but its stars bring it to life. Harry H. Corbett (AKA Harold Steptoe) and Joe Brown are such likeable characters that you can't help enjoying the movie. Add a live performance from Freddie and the Dreamers and it just can't lose.

I watched this black and white film thinking it must have been made in 1959

  • 1960 and was somewhat surprised to find it was 1963!
