Lighthearted Revue of Contemporary Pop
9 December 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This 1963 pop revue is held together by a mixture of silly plot and blackout gags. The Labour and Conservative parties believe that if they give teenagers the vote, they will vote for them; instead they form their own political party to get more contemporary music on the BBC.

The point, of course, is to showcase what seems like dozens of popular performers, each of whom performs one song. The whole thing is directed stylishly by under-rated Gordon Flemyng and shot interestingly by chief cameraman Nicholas Roeg. Each song has its own set, so the effect is like looking at VH1 with a sense of humor. Even if none of the songs are classics, they are well performed and varied in genre.

For the other reviewers, who seem to have seen this half a century ago and are looking for a copy, it showed up this morning on America's GetTV cable channel.
