Teen heartthrob Cliff Richard stars as Bongo Herbert a young rocker who plays the bongos in a London coffee house. Lawrence Harvey plays talent agent Johnny Jackson. Harvey discovers Cliff performing in a café & believes that he has the talent to become a star. The two strike up a partnership but in no time at all the relationship turns sour. The London nightlife of the late 1950's complete with smoky bars, strippers, sleazy characters, neon-lights & noisy streets is depicted well & forms an excellent backdrop for this musical drama. Look out for bit player Susan Hampshire who is the only cast member to carry her part over from the popular stage play. At the 1960 BAFTA film awards "Expresso Bongo" received two nominations, Laurence Harvey for Best British Actor & Wolf Mankowitz for Best British Screenplay. "Expresso Bongo" is an entertaining romp down memory lane it features some over-the-top musical numbers & could be best described as an intelligent satire of British pop culture in the late 1950's. Cliff Richard fans won't want to miss this early musical gem.
