Not as good as previous musicals with Cliff and the Shadows
While I enjoy Cliff and the Shadows, and am a very BIG fan of musicals,I have to say this is not one of their best. In defense of the group, I would "venture" (oops that's another group of the same period) that by the time this film was produced, they might have been a bit tired of the filmic process. But then again, Elvis was churning out similar simplistic froth at two or three a year compared to Cliff and the Shadows one every couple of years. There are worse ways to spend ninety minutes, but if you do have a choice go for one of the boys' earlier ones like "Wonderful Life" "Summer Holiday" or "The Young Ones".They had really good dance production numbers and songs which 40 years(Gad!) later I still remember.This one has a song about "Paiella!"?!!?? What were they thinking?
