    Re: Every Days a Holiday (UK, 1964)



    Did anybody enjoy this British musical from Grand National Pictures (BBC2 Sunday AM) a much as I did?



    The dancing in the park was really cool, and Freddie and the Dreamers were as well !

    Well, I enjoyed it but whether it was as much as you is anybody's guess!

    I always know that when the critics are universal in giving a film a lukewarm review (as they did this one) that it's bound to please me

    Same here. Mrs Smudge came in part way through recording and asked to watch the whole thing when it came to dubbing. Good stuff - fun and frivolous. An enjoyable 'no-brainer'

    Another one I missed ;(



    There was an old series of video releases issued back in the mid 1980s by a dubious company called Midas, who re-titled everything 'The Adventures of...'



    This film was put out as 'The Adventures of Tim.'

    There is a song in this film that I can't get out of my brain...



    Titled 'First time bitten, Second time shy' and sung by Grazina Frame in the park sequence.



    Was this ever a Top 10 hit ?

    So catchy......it should have been !

    Hi Julian,



    Grazina Frame was more of a small time actress than a popular singer.

    She appeared usually in TV and film as a "dolly bird" type.

    As a singer I do not think that she ever had any hits in the UK.

    Wasn't GF principally a dancer, who later moved into the singing/acting.



    I seem to recall she was in Cliff's SUMMER HOLIDAY...

    Just consulted my Guinness Book of Hit Singles and no Grazina Frame ever entered the charts,not least under that name anyway. The song,if that is the correct title,also never entered the charts by anyone else.

    I think Grazina dubbed the vocals for Lauri Peters in SUMMER HOLIDAY, but was not seen.

    Same role in THE YOUNG ONES, for Carole Grey.



    Grazina was a singer who had also appeared in West End musicals such as BLITZ! and FOLLOW THAT GIRL .....

    Dave.
    Accrding to a site I visted a few weeks ago it appears that Grazina is no longer with us.

    She married 60's songwriter Mitch Murray who wrote hits for Freddie & the Dreamers, Gerry & the Pacemakers and many others. They later divorced.

    Grazina's daughter Mazz Murray, like her mother is a stage/tv actress & singer and is currently starring as Killer Queen in the musical 'We Will Rock You'.

    That's the one.

    And looking at the Baker Twins, you can't blame him!



    Filmed at Butlins Holiday Camp, Clacton (now demolished).

    Richard O'Sullivan, Michael Ripper, Nicholas Parsons, John Leyton (just 6 miles from his birthplace in Frinton), The Mojo's, Freddie and the Dreamers, were all in it.



    I also like the Baker twins song Romeo Jones.



    An undemanding, but pleasant little film.
