In Expresso Bongo, Laurence Harvey stars as a sleazy agent always on the hunt for new talent. He discovers it in a teen-filled London coffee shop going crazy for bongo-playing Burt Rudge (played by Cliff Richard, the UK’s first proper rock idol). They sign a deal, but it doesn’t take Rudge very long to discover he’s being hustled. This restoration includes a number of songs cut from previous release. (111 mins., 2K DCP)
