Released in the US as Seaside Swingers, this film was a vehicle for 60s beat group, Freddie and The Dreamers.
A bizarre collection of kids work together to win a televised talent competition at a British seaside resort. By some cinematic miracle, the bunch takes the top prize.
Includes the pop tunes All I Want Is You, A Girl Needs a Boy, Second Time Around, Indubitably Me, Love Me Please, Now Ain’t That Somethin’ Cor Blimey, Romeo Jones, and What’s Cookin’?.
Photographed by Nicolas Roeg, whose credits include several popular films of the 1960’s and whose directing talent was revealed in some early 1970’s films.
