The young Tommy Steele

A fictionalised account of the rise to fame of surely the most cheerful, amiable and exuberant star in the business, Tommy Steele. There is nothing about a manager trying to turn him into Elvis Presley, but mainly musical numbers, including the amusing Cannibal Pot, though some of the others sound rather the same. Clearly made on a very low budget - scenes supposedly on a ship appear to have been shot in a church hall - I wonder what they made of it in the US where it was released under the misleading title Rock Around the World. There are a couple of calypsos from Tommy Eytle and his band, Nancy Whiskey sings Freight Train and there's a rare chance to see the great Humphrey Lyttelton and his band performing Bermondsey Bounce, written especially for the film in tribute to its star.
