THE KNACK (& HOW TO GET IT)  - BFI  DVD - Anglozine


•The Knack......and how to get it DVD/Blue Ray

UK/1965/ Black & White/Directed by Richard Lester

From the director of the Beatles films: A Hard Days Night & Help! comes this inventive romp through love and sex in 1960's London. Featuring a frenetic film making style that jumps from slapstick to serious avant-garde, this film is a mid-1960's classic.

Starring Rita Tushingham one of the best British actors of the era outmanoeuvres the wannabe stud lead male actor Ray Brooks. Musical score by John Barry husband of Jane Birkin who also makes an appearance. 

Cool and sophisticated Tolen (Ray Brooks) has a monopoly on womanising- with a long line of conquests to prove it- while the naive and awkward Colin (Michael Crawford aka Frank Spencer) desperately wants a piece of it. But when Colin falls for an innocent country girl (Tushingham), its not long before the self-assured Tolen moves in for the kill. Is all fair in love and war, or can Colin get the knack and beat Tolen at his own game.
