Although the main cast are perfectly groomed and attired for the period in the early-'60s concert scenes, this does not stretch to the extras (the crowd, and in particular the security staff) who are all clearly from 1974. Some of the music also sounds 1970s rather than 1960s. See more »
The male dancers ( extras )in the dance hall scene, dancing to "the tits and bums" were supplied by the Army Apprentices College,Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK. In particular John HICKMAN, Peter COSSON and Neil TURNER. See more »
As a very young viewer of this film at 19 in 1974 when this film was released, I saw it at the theater as there was no such thing as video tape in those days. David Essex performance had a profound effect on me as did the films plot in general. The deep insight into the life of a famous rock n roll star as can only be experienced by that individual was both riveting to me at the time and has been indelibly etched in my mind ever since. As a matter of fact i have been looking for a copy of this film on video ever since videos inception with no success to this day. A truly captivating and entertaining film if you can find it!
