Storyline

Lester Benson manages one of the biggest rock bands in 1960s Britain, the Small Faces (as themselves). He happens to be an ex-con who wants to return to the crime scene. He summons the help of Major Fairclough who safe-cracks diamonds to smuggle into the Netherlands via the Big L's ship. It seems a perfect crime as no-one served as a witness, except for an intellectually-challenged bus conductress called Mrs. Edgecomb who saw Major Fairclough ("a military-looking man").

Small Faces, Radio London... A time of dreams!
4 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just been watching this on Sky Matinée Movies. I am astonished to find a very young Kenny Everett and other Radio London DJs in this film, as well as the Faces, before they were joined by Rod Stewart. Radio London, for those who can't remember the glory days of UK Offshore Radion was THE Pirate Station which nurtured not only Kenny Everett, but also John Peel etc etc. According to the cast list, Tony Windsor is also there. Worth watching for the nostalgia and all those lovely 1960s memories! I forget the plot, but as a historical record, you can't beat it!. So sad that after his wonderfully inventive Radio Days, on both Radio London with the Kenny and Cash programme, and later with the BBC, over-exposure on TV destroyed Kenny.
