Expresso Bongo Johnny Jackson, a sleazy talent agent, discovers teenager Bert Rudge singing in a coffee house.

The deal they cut, however, is highly exploitative of the young singer, and their relationship soon begins to go bad.

Laurence Harvey's performance
Harvey's performance is akin to Cary Grant in His girl Friday which I term "Cary Grant unleashed" Like Grant, Harvey takes his character and far from overacting rather sets the screen on fire. As for the movie itself,it lags when Harvey is not on the screen and it needs another actress in the Dixie roll who can somehow match Harvey. Dixie drags down the last third of the film. For the legions who deem Harvey's career as a series of zombie-like performances, Bongo turns that opinion on it's ear. Cliff Richard does a good job in his first screen roll. Beware of the current DVD release. It does not have several musical numbers and this greatly mars the movie.
