Expresso Bongo

Scroll down

Pop manager Johnny Jackson ducks and dives in the 1950’s Soho of coffee bars, strip clubs and clip joints. With singer Bert Rudge, played by Cliff Richard, he realises he is on to a winner. Renaming him Bongo Herbert and trickily launching his career on network television, he seems to have hit the jackpot. But Johnny is both greedy and naive, and having a successful artiste is new to him. He is soon out of his depth, with only his stripper girlfriend Masie King always there with support.
