Goofs

In the song, "Money to Burn", where Kipps (Steele) is playing the banjo, it's obvious that he's simply playing along to an audio track. But the sound begins several times before he does the strumming to make it happen. This should have been watched/caught in the editing process. See more »

Fantastic Musical. Brilliant Banjo Scene
20 July 2001 | by (Daventry, England) – See all my reviews

This is a very well acted and energetic musical. Tommy Steel and Julie Foster in the lead parts were brilliantly cast.

The banjo scene in this was well choreographed, put together and acted out. To top the whole scene the banjo playing was superb.

A brilliant family musical it gets a 10/10 from us. But then we are Tommy Steele fans.
