This British film about a music contest in Liverpool was created strictly as a showcase for Gerry and The Pacemakers who had a hit with a song of the same name.
It’s sort of like a make-shift Hard Day’s Night (1964) and Gerry Marsden and his brother Freddie have most of the lines with Les Chadwick and Les Maguire consigned to bit parts for the most part.
The ferry used in the film was the Mountwood.
