Love this clip from To Sir with Love. Film as a whole as been a favourite of mine for many years. Great to see the East End circa 67

https://youtu.be/j6fj-roXP0s

I watched the movie for the first time as a kid in Spanish public TV, a bit dated but still an evocative watch. And the soundtrack -especially the theme tune- is ace. This is not Lulu of course, but a cool cover anyway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV_CYclpasI

I like the film a lot. Nice street scenes of the East End, around Wapping and Shadwell.
Watching Up the Junction shortly and if my memory serves me correctly, Smashing Time is coming o to Talking Pictures very soon.

Haven't watched "Smashing Time", Mo, is it worthy?

Definitely worth a look. It's not my fav from the era but having said that, it's pretty OK.

Thanks, chap, it's been on my list for quite a while, but sadly some iconic 60s Brit films haven't yet had a Spanish DVD release.

Did you manage to watch the film, RAFA? It's a bit silly in places but some nice street scenes.

This is another movie that regularly appears on Talking Pictures TV (sorry Rafa, only here in the UK  :().  Not watched it in a while, so will have to look out for it and record it to add to the growing list!!)

Another that I've recorded (from TPTV) that i haven't got round to watching yet.  I'll have to set some time to one side to catch up as the list is getting longer!!

I've pretty much all the usual classics on dvd but I do record them as well. Funnily enough, I don't yet own To Sir with Love but I will be rectifying this soon enough.

It's definitely worth a watch. The band Tomorrow turn up in the film but don't perform though.

Not for a long time Mo.  It's got a great musical score (I'm sure there was mention on here not too long ago of the OST being re-released recently - it might have been you or Rafa, come to think of it)

I've not seen that site before; I'll have to explore that later.

Yes, it was me or/and Rafa. I bought the soundtrack some time back. I love it as well as the film itself.
Regarding the Reel Streets site. Some of the now pictures. Well, it's gotta be said, are very different and sad. It's what they call,, 'progress'.  Hard to believe they were in fact the same streets at all.

Of course, "The Knack" is in fact one of the few British "pop" movies with enough prestige here to warrant ocassional dvd reissues. I've watched it 3 or 4 times: it didn't improve with repeated viewings though, I liked it better first time. Not saying it's bad, maybe the youthful, absurdist charm of the movie worked just once for me. As contemporary "modern" British movies go, I prefer the dark overtones and cynicism of, say, "The Servant", although the comparison is a bit unfair.
