A wonderfully entertaining slice of 60s nostalgia Summer Holiday is a hit-filled, toe-tapping, feel-good musical romp.
Cliff Richard stars as Don, a London Bus mechanic who, along with his friends (Hayes, Green, Bulloch), strikes up a deal with London Transport to convert a double-decker bus into a hotel on wheels. The gang heads off to Europe for fun in the sun and adventures along the way.
Directed by Peter Yates (Breaking Away, Bullitt), Summer Holiday features a host of Cliff Richard hits performed by Cliff and The Shadows including ‘Bachelor Boy’, ‘Foot Tapper’, ‘The Next Time’ and the title track ‘Summer Holiday’.
For the 2019 restoration of Summer Holiday, STUDIOCANAL went back to the original camera negative which was scanned and restored in 4K to produce a brand new HD master.
