Lightweight musical that never gets beyond mediocrity.
28 November 2019 | by geoffmcauliffe-60295See all my reviews

This is the second film outing for the Tommy Steele, the short lived English rock 'n' roll star, who not only gets the opportunity to sing several forgettable songs, but also enables him to act and dance with June Laverick, his love interest in the film. The film is essentially a showcase for the young pop singer to expand his career by more then just strumming a guitar and singing pop songs copied from American artists. Here, he does his best to keep the interest of the audience in this low budget film, with his toothy grin and cheeky demeanour, but his wooden acting, the absurd storyline, together with the very dull dance sequences, renders this film as simply mediocre and a yawn. Eric Pohlmann and Alan Wheatley are particularly good in supporting roles, but despite their valiant efforts, the film never moves out of second gear.
