Dave Clark Five - Having A Wild Weekend (NTSC DVD)


Price: $22.00

They came, they plaayed, they conquered.  There was no stopping them.  The British invasion of the U.S. pop scene was in full force in 1965.  And one of the most super of the supergroups was the Dave Clark Five.  The quintet takes to the screen with the same spirit they bring to their music - "the Tottenham Sound" to '60s buffs - in this breezy romp that's also the feature directorial debut of John Boorman (Deliverance, Hope and Glory).  A Year earlier; four well-known lads of the Liverpool Sound squeezed a lot of fun into  Hard Days Night.  Here, Dave and his pals stake out an entire weekend.  They're on the run helping a disenchanted media poster-girl get away from it all and Having a Wild Weekend on the wayy.  The fellas' soundtrack tunes, including the hit catch Us If You Can, pace the antics.  And everything from pop culture to the ad biz to hippies to marmalade preferences are targets to skewer.  Catch it 'cause you can!
