5.0 out of 5 stars Beat Girl as Historical Document
After its initial launch in 1960 this film was withdrawn from circulation on the grounds that it might corrupt the young.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...

2.0 out of 5 stars BUTCHERED!
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!

This review is from: Beat Girl [DVD] (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After its initial launch in 1960 this film was withdrawn from circulation on the grounds that it might corrupt the young.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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kitsch? I should co-co, 5 July 2009

HipNip (London England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Beat Girl [DVD] (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......

This review is from: The Beat Girl [VHS] [1960] (VHS Tape)
This is great! Good cast, good plot, good atmosphere; and a very youthful, super smooth Christopher Lee!
Could watch this one many times; and I have.

This review is from: Beat Girl [DVD] (DVD)
Product as described and arrived earlier than expected. Highly recommended seller. This film took me back to when I was at college and brought back many memories. Acting leaves a lot to be desired but it's a good example of a low budget film of it's genre.
