Beat Girl

K. and I watched this 1960 teen exploitation flick called Beat Girl last night. It's the story of a mildly rebellious teenage beatnik (played by Gillian Hill) and the amusingly unseedy London striptease club she becomes loosely involved with. There was some great jazz-infused surf rock in it by John Barry (composer of various James Bond themes and future ex-husband of Jane Birkin) and a few decidedly less interesting songs provided by British pop star Adam Faith who played the heroine's rocker boyfriend. Christopher Lee plays the lecherous stripclub owner.
