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!

Basically a poor little rich girl teenage delinquant film
crossed with a striptease/white slaver sleazy plot and great fun.
Jam-packed full of familiar faces. Oliver Read as the Chelsea psycho. Nigel Green as a lecherous nightclub manager. Peter McInnery as the lost posh boy. Christopher Lee as an evil pimp, Dracula without the fangs.
David Farrar, all at sea, as the beat girl's father, is an architect designing the hideous 'city 2000' It's always a mistake to use dates as it quickly ages everything. I'm reminded of the hilarious line in a 50s science fiction film, "I come from the future: 1975."
Adam Faith does well as the slum kid with a guitar and, as you'd expect, John Barry delivers a good score.
The 14 year old Gillian Hills (doubled in her more intimate close-ups) is in a long line of often convent educated English girls who had careers in France, ranging from Petula Clark to Jane Birkin.
Of course, we have to remember that it would have been pretty racy stuff at the time when even the, now innoculous, title was almost akin to calling someone a drug addicted prostitute.
People old enough to remember might find it hard to recover after the early apperarence of 'Minnie Caldwell', a Coronation Street regular, as the housekeeper which is almost as disconcerting as 'Alf Roberts' appearing in 'Get Carter'.

This is another of the BFI re release series which presents "classic" films in digitally remastered formats with bonus features and a booklet, making for an interesting package. Perhaps the key bonus is an up to date interview with Gillian Hills from 2016--she being the titular Beat Girl, and still looking great today. The film has it's faults; it's dated in concept-- set in the post Elvis pre- Beatles period, and the talk of squares and cool cats and phrases like "you send me" though maybe accurate for the time sound fairly ludicrous now. It also has a wooden studio feel to it.On the plus side the soundtrack is by John Barry in his first film soundtrack role, there are early screen appearances for Adam Faith, Shirley Anne Field and Oliver Reed, the film is daring for it's time, it is a late 50's time capsule, and the supporting cast also includes Christopher Lee. At around 80 minutes it doesn't outstay it's welcome and for me an enjoyable addition to my favourite period of British Cinema i.e. late 50's/early 60's.
