I was pleasantly surprised by this film.
1 November 2010 | by (Reading, UK) – See all my reviews

The second half of the sixties was a quieter period in Cliff's long career - the Beatles and others having changed the musical landscape to a point where since 1963 he had started to seem irrelevant and uncool.

But here we find a good-looking '67-Cliff, in a serious role, and playing a less-than-desirable character called Jamie Hopkins. He's wearing a '65 chunky cord suit and a fringed hairstyle and acts the part surprisingly well - so much so, that at times I found myself forgetting it was Cliff.

Nice little period scene near the beginning of the film, where he emerges from Picadilly Circus tube station and stops momentarily at the newsagents stand to peer at an opened Sgt. Pepper gate-fold sleeve that's there on display. There's another Beatle connection where he sings Twist and Shout.

A film that Cliff fans will probably enjoy, because it's his first serious role (one that he's most proud of, according to the sleeve notes on my Daily Mail edition), and it gives an indication of what Cliff was up to during the "summer of love".
