As of 4th June 2007, Optimum Releasing released three Poptastic 60s Musical Classics; John Boorman's Catch Us If You Can, the Sixties version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Gonks Go Beat and the long-lost pop gem Pop Gear.

Catch Us If You Can (1965)

John Boorman makes his directorial debut with this 1960s cult classic in which Dave Clark stars as a stuntman who gives up the rat-race to see the real world, along with his four friends (played by the Dave Clark Five Band).

On his travels he picks up a pretty model who's also sick of the humdrum, money driven world of advertising and decides to come along for the ride. On a sunny island they mix with beatniks and society hipsters while singing classics beat hits during a wild weekend, as agents, ad men and the national press try to catch them... if they can. A UK DVD Premiere.

Track Listing - All songs are written and performed by Dave Clark and the Dave Clark 5

Gonks Go Beat (1965)

A Sixties version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that you never expected. The Montagues and Capulets are here rival musical communities, divided by whether they love ballads or rock. Forbidden love between a couple from either side brings hope for peace.
