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
