These Dangerous Years
Legendary crooner Frankie Vaughan stars with George Baker, Kenneth Cope, John Le Mesurier and Thora Hird in this 1957 musical directed by Herbert Wilcox, the renowned producer/director of a string of hit films throughout the first half of the twentieth century.
The first of four films produced by Wilcox's wife Anna Neagle and starring Vaughan, These Dangerous Years is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Dave, a young Liverpudlian gang-leader and would-be rock 'n' roll star, is conscripted into the army where, to everyone's surprise, the rebellious youth makes good. But then he is tricked by the camp bully into crossing a minefield, causing the death of his best friend. Awaiting court-martial, he learns how, and by whom, he was set up; during the ensuing fight a gun is accidentally fired, and Dave is convinced he will be held responsible for wounding the bully...

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
