May 2nd BE MY GUEST 1965

TTFW
Delightful film set in the sixties before it was really swinging and has David Hemmings before he was a star. He plays a young lad from London whose family inherit a guest house in Brighton. He and his mates (including a young Steve Marriott of the Small Faces) end up writing a pop song as well as having fun by the sea. The bloke who plays Sid James son in Bless This House crops up in this film as well as Lionel Blair’s sister, Joyce. It’s all very innocent stuff and features cameos by Jerry Lee Lewis and the Nashville Teens, and it features scenes filmed inside the Brighton Hippodrome!
