Live It Up

Lance Comfort (1963)

U Certificate


Our Score
You'd hardly know that the Beatles were in the process of transforming the British pop scene from some of the sounds presented in this determinedly traditional musical. Lance Comfort was a decent director, but he was hardly cutting edge and he handles the drama as unimaginatively as he stages the songs. Icon-in-waiting David Hemmings looks distinctly uncomfortable as the Post Office messenger who defies trad dad Ed Devereux to bid for the top, prompting a hackneyed subplot about an audition tape and a big American producer. But at least there's the chance to see the legendary Gene Vincent in action.


A Post Office messenger boy makes a bid for pop stardom, despite the disapproval of his old-fashioned father. Comedy, starring David Hemmings, Jennifer Moss and John Pike.
