From the Back Cover
Upon its release in 1963, Summer Holiday broke all British box office records and sealed Cliff Richard' reputation as England's best-loved entertainer. This delightful musical adventure also marked the film debut of director Peter Yates (Bullitt, Breaking Away), and features Cliff's classic hits "Summer Holiday," "Bachelor Boy," "Dancing Shoes" and "The Next Time," as well as the #1 instrumental smash "Toe Tapper" by his virtuoso backing band The Shadows.

Top Customer Reviews
There are many reasons why this movie works so well. There is a great cast of young, supporting players who match Cliff's enthusiasm, and Lauri Peters is a lovely leading lady. The dance numbers are expertly done--Cliff may not be Gene Kelly ( who is ? ) but he acquits himself very well, and watch out for one of his mates played by Teddy Green, a real pro. Comic sequences are very amusing. On-location European scenery is a big plus--Cliff singing "The Next Time" with the Acropolis behind him leaves a lasting impression.
The soundtrack quite simply is Cliff's best. "Summer Holiday", "Bachelor Boy", "Dancing Shoes", great production numbers and three excellent instrumentals by the legendary Shadows add up to super entertainment.
Finally, let's give full credit to the star--Sir Cliff was about 22 when this was filmed--he looks great, sounds great and has charm and charisma to spare. No movie will give you a better idea as to why he has had such a long career, and remains enormously popular all over the globe.
Oh yes--the DVD--the widescreen picture is gorgeous. This film is almost 40 years old, and yet the colours are beautiful and details clear. Thank you, Anchor Bay, for a superb job.
The songs are a class apart and each number is worth treasuring for a lifetime.
Over all, an excellent movie classic worth storing.
