The British “new wave” finally revealed a sense of humor in this 1960 comedy of showbiz corruption. Laurence Harvey is a hilariously fast-talking con man who discovers, promotes, and exploits the hell out of a mediocre bongo player. Cliff Richard, then England's most popular singing star, plays the overnight idol with curdling self-parody—a move tantamount to Elvis Presley appearing in a Stanley Kubrick film. Val Guest directed, but the show is Harvey's all the way. 111 min.
