This behind-the-scenes, making-of promo for the musical film The Boy Friend (1971) features cast and crew interviews, lots of behind-the-scenes footage of song and dance rehearsals, and some musical clips from the feature film. Much of the discussion concerns recreating the look and feel of the 1920's era or centers on the star actress Twiggy. Written by TimeNTide

Less Than Memorable Promo for a Forgotten Feature that may be Worth a Watch
7 January 2009 | by TimeNTideSee all my reviews

This short is a behind the scenes, making of promo for the musical feature film "The Boy Friend" (1971). I saw it on TCM in the US where it plays occasionally.

This short was a bit educational for me for two reasons. First, even though I grew up in the 70's, I don't remember even hearing about the film "The Boy Friend". I assumed it was probably forgotten because it was lousy, but it actually has a very good IMDb user rating, so I'll have to check it out if I ever get the chance. Second, although I grew up hearing about the skinny 60's fashion model icon named Twiggy, I never knew that she became an actress, much less one that sang and danced.

As the title implies, there's lots of talking and singing and dancing in this short. Frankly, nothing that the narrator, director, production designer or Twiggy says is terribly interesting or memorable. There's lots of behind the scenes footage of dance and song rehearsals, along with clips from the feature film which is a musical set in the 1920's. Those parts are somewhat enjoyable if you like musicals.

Overall... nothing memorable in this short, but it did put me on the trail of a feature film that may be worth checking out.
