The Beatles appear via some newsreel footage, singing "Twist and Shout" and "She Loves You". This is the same footage that TV show host Jack Paar showed to the American public just weeks before their 1964 debut on Ed Sullivan's show, The Ed Sullivan Show (1948)). See more »

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits the performers' names are listed twice. The second time around, Billie Davis' name is misspelled "Billy Davis". See more »

British pop nostalgia!
15 October 2000 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Not a movie, but a lip synched collection of performances from acts that were part of the British Invasion, that followed the dynamic entrance of the Beatles to the music world. Some of these acts did not make a big splash on this side of the pond, but a lot of them did. Featured are: Herman's Hermits, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Peter and Gordon, Honeycombs, Nashville Teens, Animals, and of course,the Beatles.

It is so much fun watching these young acts before they honed and polished their acts.
