Summary
"A sly, sleazy and unscrupulous music agent, Johnny Jackson (Laurence Harvey) trolls the neon-streaked sidewalks of London's SoHo district in search of fresh meat to exploit. He finds it in a teen-packed coffee bar where a pampadoured rebel (Cliff Richard) is dazzling his peers with his pouty, Presleyish voice and a talent for pounding the skins. Johnny renames the kid "Bongo" Herbert and, with the help of his stripper girlfriend (Sylvia Syms), guides the potential teen idol along the rocky path to fame." -- container cover.
