Wonderful Life

Poor and rather incoherent Cliff and The Shads film in which the boys (plus Susan Hampshire and the inevitable Una Stubbs and Melvyn Hayes) get involved with stereotypical overbearing Euro director Walter ‘voice of Gepetto’ Slezak and do a cute little speeded-up ‘brief history of cinema’ mime routine before Cliff sheds his rock ‘n’ roll mantle once and for all in a respect-your-elders duet with Slezak, averring “It Takes Youth and Experience”. Richard O’Sullivan and Gerald ‘Adamant’ Harper also star.
