Katharine Hilliard, mousy dean of a stuffy music school, meets and is insulted by swing band leader Barry Clayton on a train. To "show" him she takes a friend's advice, removes her glasses, and puts on a designer gown. Naturally, she becomes gorgeous. Soon, both Barry and crooner Jimmy Hale are after her, and she finds herself in the midst of triangles and misunderstandings.
In Paris, after winning the lottery, the clerk François goes to a bar in Pigalle and offers one hundred thousand Euros per month to the prostitute Daniela to live with him until the end of his money.

Then, she decides to come back to her man, the mobster Charly, but she misses François and returns to his place. But once a whore, always a whore.
Although they never wowed the critics like the Beatles did, for a time in the mid-'60s the Dave Clark Five were the Fab Four's main commercial competition, turning out hit after hit and selling an astounding 100 million records before all was said and done. This generous, 28-track, single-disc anthology has all the essentials (the DC5 were never really an album band but they sure knew how to make singles), including "Glad All Over," "Catch Us If You Can," "Over and Over," "Can't You See That She's Mine," "Bits and Pieces," and the gorgeous ballad "Because," among others, making this a more than adequate introduction and career survey of a wonderfully fun and often underrated band…
Three British bands defined the British Invasion of 1964 which changed America. The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Dave Clark Five. Fifty years later this film tells the story of the Dave Clark Five, their emergence from working-class Tottenham, their unique sound, their close friendship, their self-managed business philosophy and the youthful exuberance with which they captured the USA. Testifying to the lasting impact of the band and what made them unique in an era of brilliant, game-changing creativity, Dave Clark's two-hour documentary features newly filmed interviews with Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sir Ian McKellen, Stevie Wonder, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Bruce Springsteen, Steven van Zandt of the E Street Band, Gene Simmons of Kiss, Whoopi Goldberg, Dionne Warwick and Twiggy.
For many years, the Dave Clark Five were one of the few major groups of the 1960s.
The first six volumes of this unauthorized series of Dave Clark Five CD reissues contain everything from the 12 non-compilation LPs the group issued in the U.S. between 1964-1968, as well as everything from the four U.K. LPs (never issued in the U.S.) that followed in 1969-1972. The seventh and final volume contains 25 tracks that somehow didn't find a place on any of those LPs.
