The late GREAT Billy Fury
1 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched the film with great intent on seeing the fabulous BILLY FURY , being a life long BILLY FURY fan I watch all the films and footage I can of him . Billy had such a gentle nature and he was best with himself when he was with animals. I watched it , then thought my grand daughters would like to see it, they thoroughly enjoyed it too. I can recommend this film to all the older generation who appreciate the 60's films of pop stars and I also recommend it for the youngsters who will I am sure will enjoy it.The film has some lovely songs in it and as well as I appreciated them ( of course I would ) I am a BILLY FURY fan the children enjoyed then as well.The film has a lot of memories of the fabulous 60's.
