Charley Moon DVD


Already a phenomenally successful entertainer and stalwart of the London Palladium in 1956 Max Bygraves headed an accomplished cast in this musical drama charting the rocky road to success for a young comedy hopeful. An early feature for future Goldfinger director Guy Hamilton and double Oscar-winning composer and screenwriter Leslie Bricusse Charley Moon is presented here in a brand new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. A new career opens for Charley Moon when during his army service he is detailed to appear... in a unit concert. In doing so he becomes friendly with Harold Armytage a peacetime actor of the old school. Hearing that Charley has no job to go to when demobilized Armytage suggests they team up as stage comics. Things are not easy; jobs are few and far between and when they can be found they are in the tattiest of theatres but Charley gains the experience he needs. They then decide to try their luck in London... Special Features: Original Theatrical Trailer Image Gallery Original Pressbook PDF [show more]

Guy Hamilton directs this 1950s British drama following the rise to fame of a young comedian. Charley Moon (Max Bygraves) first discovers his ability to entertain during World War II, when he appears in a military concert and captures the attention of Harold Armytage (Dennis Price), a pre-war entertainer. When victory is won and the unit disbanded, Harold suggests to Charley that they team up and form a comedy duo. Though times are hard and the pair must battle to be heard in rowdy venues, they build their confidence to such an extent that they decide to head to the bright lights of London. How will they fare in the capital?
