Julian Curry, Gretchen Regan, Madeline Smith, Clement Freud, Totti Truman Taylor
Clive Dunn, Roy Kinnear, Eric Pohlmann, William Rushton, Irene Handl
and many more in this extremely large cast list.

A rare outing for Georgie Fame in this British romantic comedy film where a leading pop star is kidnapped in swinging London. Music is provided by the Bee Gees.

  Catalina Caper (1967)… Tommy Kirk, Del Moore, Peter Duryea, Robert Donner, Ulla Stromstedt, Brian Cutler, Lyle Wagoner, Little Richard, the Cascades, Mary Wells, Carol Connors. One of the last attempts to cash in on the dying beach movie formula. Wells sings the title tune, Little Richard sings Scuba Party. Need we say more? [Connors eventually became a porn star.]     The Love-Ins (1967)… Richard Todd, James MacArthur, Susan Oliver, Mark Goddard, Carol Booth, Marc Cavell, Janee Michelle, Ronnie Eckstine. Hollywood's version of hippies, the underground, pregnancy, murder and drugs with Todd playing a Timothy Leary character.

  The Cool Ones (1967)… Roddy McDowall, Debbie Watson, Gil Peterson, Phil Harris, Robert Coote, Mrs. Miller. Campy spoof of the music business (shades of Phil Spector as the manager character) has some interesting moments but inevitably falls flat. Glen Campbell, the Bantams, the Leaves and T.J. and the Foundations provide musical interludes. [The Leaves were the first group to score a hit with their version of Hey Joe… Look for the ubiquitous Mrs. (Elvira) Miller, an old lady who spent most of her time in the audiences of popular TV shows of the day.]     Riot on Sunset Strip (1967)… Aldo Ray, Mimsy Farmer, Michael Evans, Laurie Mock, Tim Rooney, Bill Baldwin. Cop's daughter gets involved with hippies and drugs. Features The Standells and The Chocolate Watchband performing at Pandora's Box on the Sunset Strip.
