From the Back Cover

When aspiring young pop singer Nicky Black (Cliff Richard) learns that his local youth club is to be demolished by his millionaire tycoon father (Robert Morley), he and his friends decide to stage a variety show to buy the lease. But as they begin jamming the airwaves with pirate radio transmissions of Nicky's songs, all of London becomes obsessed with the identity of this 'mystery singer.' Can one big night of singing and dancing now save the day, or will the battle of wits between father and son bring down the house?
Also known as Wonderful To Be Young, this delightful 1961 classic launched the international careers of both Cliff Richard and director Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File, Lady Sings the Blues) and remains one fo the most beloved British movie musicals of all time. The Young Ones has been restored from original UK archive materials and features Cliff's #1 hits "The Girl In Your Arms" and "The Young Ones," as well as The Shadows' instrumental smash "The Savage".

The story is about a group of young people who frequent, and run a youth club. The leader, Nicky (played by Cliff Richard) is a rebellious rock 'n' roll singer while harbouring a dark secret he must keep from the other club members. The youth club land is about to be sold to property developers unless the gang can renew the Lease. The race is on as the gang have to put on a show (secret weapon: The Mystery Singer) to raise enough money to defeat the millionaire developer (A whimsical yet menacing Robert Morley).
To some extent this is a typical vehicle for a pop star, but Cliff acquits himself well and fares better than Elvis did in some of his movies. There is a pretty good soundtrack featuring several great songs written by Cliff Richard's backing group, The Shadows, plus one or two old-fashioned musical numbers.

I was a 13 year old in Bombay when this flick came out. I didn't realize what a large hit it had been in England until I read the liner notes for the dvd. But Cliff Richard was huge in India and England at the time. The movie was an event. Part MGM style musical, part teenage heartthrob pic. The only real 'rock' performance came in the final scene - "We Say Yeah!" In 1963 this was edgy, rebellious stuff to us and "The Shadows" were right up there with "The Ventures" as an instrumental band. Well produced. Good performance by Robert Morely as the villain who wants to raze the teen club to build a high rise. Brings pre-Beatle era London to life. A fun look back.

Item arrived right on time and just as the seller descbibed. In there lies the problem LOL This has nothing to do with the seller they were great. I should have found out that a Region 2 DVD would not play a regular or American DVD.I could not wait to get this and watch the Shadows perform, put in the DVD and nothing. Oh well should have found about the Region 2.

I remember seeing this as a teen. Over 50 years ago. Hard to believe. Even harder is that there are 3 songs in here that I remembered the words to. I had very fond memories of this LET'S PUT ON A SHOW teen musical. It did not fade with time. Good story with a moral. Good singing and dancing. I was so happy to see it again after all these years.

The Young Ones with Cliff Richard was released in 1961. One of his best films, it was a big hit.The best song was the theme The Young Ones and it was a #1 hit in England. Fans of Cliff Richard will like this the most.
