Music Dancing Animals Horses Very Enjoyable 60s Musical
29 December 2013 | by (Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a neat little film with plenty of music and dancing featuring Billy Fury and Amanda Barrie. It is set in the musical 60s in the UK and the majority of the filming was done on the East coast in Norfolk along with some scenes at Shepperton Studios and Epsom Racecourse. The film opens at the remote Stracey Arms Mill and the Branch Road turning near Halvergate. Next location is The Royality Theatre in Great Yarmouth along with the racecourse and seafront. In case you were wondering where the lifting road bridge, in which the cast drive over in an old Seagull coach was, it is The Haven Bridge in Great Yarmouth and it is interesting to see the old tramway tracks that ran along the quay until the early 70s. Incidentally Seagull Coaches were based in the town and united with Caroline Coaches to form Caroline Seagull Coaches in Great Yarmouth until just a few years ago when they went into liquidation after several years operation in the town. Children would probably love this film with all the animals, horses and dancing although now a little dated but nevertheless still enjoyable. Some good parts played by Fury & Barrie and watch out for a cameo role by the late Jon Pertwee.
