The Great Escape - Music & More

Dick Lester (Help!, A Hard Day's Night) directs this singular British musical extravaganza. The pop culture explosion reveals a generation gap in a small English town when the mayor (Felix Felton, Up in the Air, 1969) forces a teenage hangout to stop using it's TV set and jukebox. A pair of crafty local teens, Helen (Helen Shapiro, Play It Cool) and Craig (Craig Douglas, Murder Can Be Deadly), counterattack by trying to put together a festival that will demonstrate the merits of traditional jazz and rock 'n' roll. While trying to enlist disc jockeys for the jazz show, they hear such talents as Del Shannon, The Dukes of Dixieland, Gary (U.S.) Bonds, the inimitable Chubby Checker, Gene Vincent and many others.
