John Barry's Beat Girl
19-Feb-2011 - él Records has released the remastered edition of Beat Girl. With a teen cast starring Adam Faith, Gillian Hills (the English Brigitte Bardot) Peter McEnery, Shirley Anne Field and a young Oliver Reed, playing opposite the Corbusieresque architect David Farrar and seedy strip club owner Chrisopher Lee, Beat Girl is a vintage British exploitation movie. The film owes much of its effectiveness to John Barry's impressive first film score - actually the first British original film soundtrack lp - with Vic Flick's savage twangy guitar presaging the Bond theme that was less than two years away. Beat Girl explores prostitution, juvenile delinquency, beatniks, jazz music, French women and coffee bars. It has no plot but a lot of energy and invention with the young Adam Faith the personification of cool sixteen year- old Gillian Hills perfect in the title role.
