Weds 3 August : Summer Holiday (U)
(Comedy, Musical - 1963)
A fabulous 60s Musical. This was the first feature-length film for successful British director Peter Yates and it was also a winner, in part, because its star Cliff Richard was Britain's hottest rock 'n roll property in the early '60s. The title song climbed to No. 1 in the charts in Britain. The tale centres around Don (Richard) and his two friends as they take off in a double-decker London bus to travel around Europe and see the sights. Along the way from France to Greece they manage to give rides to a variety of interesting people -- especially a few young women. (Film duration 1 hr 47 mins)
