Product Description

A hip and swinging piece of beat generation film-making starring Adam Faith, Oliver Reed, Christopher Lee and Shirley Anne Field. Jennifer (Gillian Hills) is really digging the beat style and lives for kicks, but her dad is a square and just doesn't understand. Her stepmother hides a secret that she wants to forget, but Jennifer's determined to find out what it is, and searches through the happening 1960s to do just that - journeying from coffee shop to strip joint. This uncut version of the cult film features John Barry's first soundtrack. Groovy, Daddy-O.

This is the american release which is a bad print and clumsily edited. The UK version available on VHS a few years ago was much better than this. This is a real shame because the UK Cut is really quite fun in a retro-sleazy way!
Wow Daddy-O Im Over and Out!

Format: DVD
After its initial launch in 1960 this film was withdrawn from circulation on the grounds that it might corrupt the young.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.

Format: DVD
A classic "so bad it's good" British film , has a great soundtrack I believe the guitar hook on the main them was used by Norman (Fat Boy Slim) Cook on his "Funk Soul Brother" track some years back. Christopher Lee plays a type of villain that you really want to "boo and hiss" at and there's some terrible acting from Adam Faith, who was a teen heart throb at the time of filming. Strangely they use the opening film scene again later in the movie! and there is some really wacky editing.
enjoy......
