Product Description

EXPRESSO BONGO (Flipside 031) (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Val Guest

When Soho hustler Johnny Jackson (Laurence Harvey), a drummer-turned-music agent, discovers teen bongo player Bert Rudge (Cliff Richard) in an espresso bar, he renames him Bongo Herbert, and secures him a record deal and a TV appearance. Soon, Johnny is riding the coat-tails of Bert's stardom. Val Guest's sharp, witty satire of the music industry was adapted from the successful West End musical by Wolf Mankowitz. This fully remastered release includes the original, full-length theatrical version, as well as the shorter 1962 re-issue cut.

  • Full-length theatrical version (111 mins): DVD and Blu-ray premiere of the original long cut from 1959
  • 1962 re-issue version (106 mins, Blu-ray exclusive): shorter alternative cut which removed a number of songs
  • Audio commentary for the 1962 re-issue version featuring Val Guest, Yolande Donlan and film historian Marcus Hearn
  • Alternative sequences from the 1962 cut (2 mins, DVD only): the scenes which were added to replace cut songs
