Aro Favourite Beat Girl


UK 1960, 89 minutes, B/W
Dir. Edmond T. Greville
Rating: [M]
Genres: Cult / Controversy, Youth

Topics: Beatnik.


Aroview: Providing a rare peek into the British 'beat scene', this groovy juvenile delinquency drama proves there was teenage wildlife before the Beatles, and is quite subversive by 1960 British standards.

On a quest to prove something to square old Dad, rich girl Gillian Hills gets mixed up with pacifist beatnik Adam Faith and sleazy strip-club owner Christopher Lee, while hurling dialogue like it's straight from the fridge, Daddy-O. Also notable for being composer John Barry's first film score and featuring a small role for a spotty Oliver Reed.
