Cuckoo Patrol (1965)

Another lightweight vehicle for British cabaret/beat group Freddie and The Dreamers – although by the time the film was finally released, the band’s main chart success was over and the audience for a black-and-white film starring Freddie Garrity clad in short trousers was understandably a limited one

The title says it all – and the film could quite justifiably be subtitled ’76 minutes of drivel’.

It’s no Hard Day’s Night, that’s for sure . . .
