Never Let Go (Guillermin, 1960): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8.10pm

This 35mm presentation, part of the John Barry season at BFI Southbank, also screens on February 11th. Full details here.

BFI introduction:
In what was only Barry’s second film, Never Let Go’s brassy, swinging score made it a musical twin to the better-known Beat Girl. This terrific, hard-edged crime drama is largely set in a now-vanished district of West London. It sees Peter Sellers running a car racket, Adam Faith as his car-stealing accomplice, Carol White as his teenage moll and a sweaty, hapless Richard Todd as his unfortunate victim.

Here (and above) is an extract.
