That’ll Be The Day

It’s not really a glam film, is That’ll, being set in the ’50s, but it does come from David Puttnam’s Goodtimes Enterprises, who did plenty of good work in this field, and there’s another cameo from Ringo Starr, as dodgem car attendant and mentor to David Essex’s wannabe rock star. There’s also Billy Fury as Stormy Tempest, Keith Moon as, er, Keith Moon, Robert Lindsay, Vivian Stanshall and Karl Howman among the names to look for, all set against a bleak Isle of Wight landscape, with woodbines and squalid caravan sex adding to the Byrite-budget grimness.

    Oh no it doesn’t, it features Deborah “Victoria from Dr Who” Watling. Wendy is in Blood on Satan’s Claw.

    Sorry, I knew it was someone who had been in Dr Who.

    Stardust, I can watch time and time again and never get bored, but That’ll Be the Day is just tedium to me.
