Cute movie of interest for lovers of 50's and 60's music
12 June 2002 | by EdermikeSee all my reviews

In The US it is hard to find but this movie has two things worth seeing. First is Jerry Lee Lewis' great performance. This was filmed at the peak of his career and has a song never offically releases. Second Steve Marriott of the the seminal bands The Small Faces and Humble Pie is one of the stars. He is very young here and his performance is a bit different then his tough RnB stage persona. It is too hard to find film of the Small faces period but this gives you a little glimpse of their main force before stardom. He is very innocent and almost boyish here how different. Oh the movie itself has a bad plot and bad acting but hey this is a cool film anyhow.
