    Believe it or not, but there was a time when Cliff Richard was cool, and nowhere is that absurd assertion better proven than in Peter Yates's 'Summer Holiday'. Cliff and company board a London Bus and set off on their holiday which, as the song goes, ought to last for a week or two: The Batchelor Boy sings and smiles his way from London to Athens via Paris and avails any given opportunity to break into song. 'Summer Holiday' is an upbeat, gentle, early 60s' romp filmed in glorious Technicolor: A simple film for simpler times; Yates, who'd go onto direct tough thrillers like 'Bullit' (1968) and Cold War TV series 'Danger Man', perfectly captures the carefree mood of the era and works in harmony with bright & breezy visuals from cinematographer John Wilcox (DP on films like 'Carve Her Name with Pride' and 'A Touch of Larceny'). An enjoyable, iconic musical that stands the test of time: Good clean fun.

Four London Transport workers head off on a European holiday in a red double decker bus. A piece of 1960s optimism with the memorable title song by Cliff Richard.
