Double Feature!

U.K. film. Excellent quality. 4:3 aspect ratio. Juvenile delinquent biker boys form a beat group and sing and play cool Shadows-esque numbers. This color film provides an excellent window into 1962 British working class teenage culture. Beat music by Valerie Mountain and the Eagles (no, not those Eagles).

Highlight scenes include: motorcycle gang wearing tight jeans, black leather jackets, and white silk scarves and looking perfect! Teenage girl sits in bathtub wearing jeans to shrink them skin-tight. Coffee bars, youth clubs, roller rinks, clothes shopping, pubs, amusement parks and teddy boys. Tons of beat group scenes showing the group forming, rehearsing and performing.

This film captures what it must have been like pre-Beatles/Merseybeat boom when boys all over Britain were living in council estates (social housing projects), playing guitar and teetering on delinquency while playing in a group. Directed by Clive Donner (Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush). Some nice Bristol location footage including the BAC factory and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Kenneth More, Ray Brooks, Angela Wilkes, David Hemmings, David Andrews, Angela Douglas, Fanny Carby, Harry H. Corbett, Richard Davis, Frankie Dymon, Valerie Mountain and the Eagles. Songs include: "Some People," "Yes You Did," "Too Late," "Bristol express," and "Johnny's Tune."

Plus this bonus selection...

U.K. short film. Documents the sights and sounds of Saturday night in a jazz club in Wood Green, North London. What you'll see: pompadours, pints of ale, tight sweaters, lindy and jive dancing. Priceless footage of 1950s UK teenagers and twenty-something's socializing and having a good time.

Shop girls and teddy boys. An awkward fancy-pants couple arrives via chauffeured limo to dig on the jumpin' jivin' festivities. An uptight "toff" won't dance with his girl. The Chris Barber Jazz Band fires on all cylinders and drives the crowd into a jivn' frenzy. A twisting, shaking, bouncing twirling, flailing, joyous good time.
