Golden Disc, The (1958)

Young pop composer Harry Blair (Canadian Lee Patterson) and singer Joan Farmer (Mary Steele, who was married to director Don Sharp) open a coffee bar, bankrolled by their trendy Aunt Sarah (Linda Gray).

They are joined by budding singer Terry Dene as himself. Dene sings at the cafe and – unable to get a record deal – the trio starts their own “Lucky Charm” record label.

The Golden Disc features many musical acts – covering everything from folk to skiffle and jazz, with some ballads and rock and roll thrown in – and DJ David Jacobs as himself.

The film was shot at Walton Studios and released in the US as The Inbetween Age.
