I love this movie. Gerry and the boys are adorable, the music is good, but the best part is a vintage look at Liverpool. Many scenes of the city, the famous Art College, the Cavern, and in the Big Contest scene, a real fight broke out and was caught on film. Fred Marsden (Gerry's brother and the drummer) is the funniest one, with silly looks and his fumbling about. Chad gets many lines, and he later said they had trouble filming the scenes on their Lambretta scooters because he kept falling off of his! Plus they fix him up like a certain dictator in art class. Poor Leslie Maguire, pianist, doesn't get as many lines. Look for incontinuities. Gerry's girlfriend's hairdo changes a few times in the art school scene. If it had been filmed in color it would have rated a 10!!
