Sixties Beat Trio in June

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of three sixties music classics on 4th June 2007. Priced at £15.99 each are…

Catch Us If You Can (1965)
John Boorman makes his directorial debut with this 1960s cult classic in which Dave Clark stars as a stuntman who gives up the rat-race to see the real world, along with his four friends (played by the Dave Clark Five Band). On his travels he picks up a pretty model who’s also sick of the humdrum, money driven world of advertising and decides to come along for the ride. On a sunny island they mix with beatniks and society hipsters while singing classics beat hits during a wild weekend, as agents, ad men and the national press try to catch them…if they can.

Featuring songs written and performed by Dave Clark, Catch Us If You Can is receiving its UK DVD Premiere.

1.33:1 Full Frame with English Mono.

Gonks Go Beat (1965)
A Sixties version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet that you never expected…. The Montagues and Capulets are here rival musical communities, divided by whether they love ballads or rock. Forbidden love between a couple from either side brings hope for peace…. Featuring a host of 60s Beat groups including Elaine and Derek, Lulu and the Luvvers, The Long and the Short, The Nashville Teens, Ray Lewis and the Trekkers, The Graham Bond Organisation, Bobby Graham, Alan David, Ginger Baker, Ronnie Verral, The Trolls, The Vaquieros and, erm, some furry puppets called the Gonks.

1.33:1 Full Frame with English Mono.

Pop Gear (1965)
This long-lost pop gem features many of the bands that made up the British Invasion in 1964, book-ended by the Beatles and hosted by the ultimate 60s pop icon himself, Sir Jimmy Savile.

2.35:1 Widescreen with English Mono.
