A cult classic British film about late-fifties youth rebellion set against an intoxicating Beatnik backdrop. When divorced architect Paul (David Farrar) marries Parisian Nichole (NoÃ«lle Adam), his teenage daughter, Jennifer (Gillian Hills), is less than pleased, and throws herself into the London beatnik scene and a music-fuelled life of juvenile delinquency.

With an all-star cast including David Farrar (Black Narcissus, The Small... Back Room), Shirley Anne Field (Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Peeping Tom), Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings, Dracula) and a young Oliver Reed (Women in Love, Oliver!), Beat Girl is notable for its original music by composer John Barry, his first ever film commission, and the acting debuts of teen idol Adam Faith and actress Gillian Hills (Blowup, A Clockwork Orange, The Owl Service).

Gillian Hills stars in the title role of this cult British drama that delves into the youth culture of the late 1950s. After wealthy architect Paul Linden (David Farrar) returns from Paris with his new wife Nichole (Noelle Adam), his wayward teenage daughter Jenny (Hills) rebels by throwing herself headlong into the London Beatnik scene. Jenny mixes with her hop-head friends in the coffee houses, bars and clubs of Soho, where smarmy strip club owner Kenny King (Christopher Lee) tries to seduce her into the glamorous dancing business. When an old friend of Nichole's reveals her dubious past to Jenny she uses the information to blackmail her new stepmother and embarrass her father. But as her behaviour grows increasingly wild and reckless the newlyweds are forced to intervene to put a stop to Jenny's unruly antics.
Please note this is a region 2 DVD/ region B Blu-ray and will require a region 2 or region free DVD/Blu-ray player in order to play. Restless teen Jennifer (Gillian Hills, Blow-up) escapes her square papa (David Farrar, Black Narcissus) at Soho's Off Beat coffee bar, rocking it with beatnik Dave (a super-cool Adam Faith), sensual singer Dodo (Shirley Anne Field) and icy-eyed Plaid Shirt (Oliver Reed). But a secret from Jennifer's French stepmother's past leads to the Les Girls strip joint, run by Kenny King (Christopher Lee). Remastered from the original negatives, and featuring John Barry's fantastic first soundtrack, this legendary British 1950s juvenile delinquency flick is straight from the fridge, daddy-o.
