Hold On! (1966)

In 1965 and 1966, Manchester group Herman’s Hermits were second only to The Beatles in popularity in the US, and they were offered their first starring role in a pop musical movie.

Herman and the boys are touring America when NASA offers them the chance of having a spaceship named after them.

Wacky adventures ensue and the boys and their chipmunk-like singer (Peter Noone) play eleven songs, including the superior She’s A Must To Avoid. Shelley Fabares plays the poor little rich girl who gets to meet Herman.

This film was also known as There’s No Place Like Space.
