On the movie bill with "Help!"
6 December 2009 | by PlaygroundGirlSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this film since its theatrical release in 1965, when it was shown (first) on the same movie bill with "Help!" I saw "A Hard Day's Night" in first release the previous year, and did not find "Ferry Across the Mersey" to be "a carbon copy" of The Beatles' film (as suggested by another reviewer).

Beatles fans were hungry for anything even peripherally related to them, and this look at *their* Liverpool couldn't have been more welcome. Like many other Beatles fans, I was fairly ambivalent about most other British groups, but I, too, became a fan of Gerry & the Pacemakers after seeing the film.

Especially with all the interest by subsequent generations in "the British invasion" and other phenomena of the 1960s music scene (and the nostalgic interest by those of us who lived it), I am surprised this film hasn't been released on video/DVD, and would certainly add my voice to those requesting it.
