After its initial launch in 1960 this film was withdrawn from circulation on the grounds that it might corrupt the young. It has only just become available on DVD. In the meantime the world has changed and it now looks laughably innocent. The music, by John Barry, is genuinely excellent. Probably his most original. With the exception of Christopher Lee,who is always wonderful, the acting, by Adam Faith, Gillian Hills, Shirley Ann Field, Oliver Reed, Peter McEnery is so bad that it's brilliant. It's a much better film than "Expresso Bongo" which has a similar setting ( Soho strip clubs) but has Cliff Richard rather than Adam Faith. Both show just how shabby Britain was in 1959/60.
