THE LADY IS A SQUARE 1959
U.K. film. Excellent quality. Widescreen. Rock 'n' Roll Conquers All.
Well, sort of rock 'n' roll – England's 1958 type of rock n roll. ("The Lady Is A Square" was filmed in 1958 and released in 1959.)

The story concerns an aspiring pop/rock 'n' roll singer who falls for an upper class beauty whose mother controls her life and definitely does not approve of rock 'n' roll. In fact, she's a benefactor of a celebrated classical pianist. If she ever found out about her daughter liking a pop singer, she'd flip out.

The singer hangs out in a music store and auditions a new song, "Honey Bunny Baby" for his friend and agent. The agent gets him a recording deal and we see him in the studio recording the tune. Meanwhile the singer pretends to be a piano tuner so he can get into the house of the girl he fancies. He winds up being a butler for the evening and then stays on longer.

It turns out the mother has just gone bankrupt and her electricity is about to be turned off. The singer gets some money from his record label to pay to keep her lights on. She still doesn't approve of rock 'n' roll so he sings to her: "The Lady is a Square." In the end the old bag changes her tune! Hooray for rock 'n' roll.

Songs include: "Honey Bunny Baby," "That's My Doll," "Piano Boogie," "The Lady Is a Square," and "Love Is The Sweetest Thing." Anna Neagle, Frankie Vaughan, Janette Scott, Anthony Newley, Wilfrid Hyde-White, Christopher Rhodes, Kenneth Cope, Josephine Fitzgerald.

Plus this bonus selection...

YOUTH CLUB 1954
U.K. short film. Amusement halls loaded with pinball machines and huge clouds of cigarette smoke do not provide a setting for the development of decent contributing members of society. Britain's youth clubs however, keep kids out of trouble and produce fine, upstanding young citizens.
