Watch Catch Us If You Can - Alternative Versions.
I'd heard a lot about this film before I ever had the chance to see it. I
was predisposed to be dismissive.
However, when I finally DID see it, I was taken quite aback.
The director, John Boorman, is very negative about this film in his recent
autobiography. I must disagree. There is a lazy school of thought that
this movie as a straight rip-off of "A Hard Day's Night". Again, I
When I sat down to watch this film I expected something approximating to
stock descriptions: derivative, formulaic, just going through the
I was quite unprepared for the reality of "Catch Us If You Can", which is
far more challenging and rule-breaking movie than its reputation would
suggest. (I can only suppose that some people see what they expect to
It surprised me that a vehicle for a pop band should be so downbeat and
thought-provoking. Another IMDb reviewer rightly drew attention to the
wintriness of this film.
There are two vital encounters in the film, once Steve (Dave Clark) and
Dinah (Barbara Ferris) have fled from the TV commercial they are meant to
filming. The first is with a collection of hippie-esque drop-outs hiding
in rural ruins, the second with a middle-aged couple in a large townhouse
the affluent spa-town of Bath.
Their moves are monitored at a remove by a sinister advertising man, Leon
Zissell, who seems to have a Svengali-like preoccupation with Dinah. To
end he dispatches two henchmen to pursue the errant couple. The elder of
two (not THAT old, as somebody remarks - probably in his mid-30s) is

the charms of a pretty young lady.
I could try to encapsulate the plot of this film, but what matters far
is its atmosphere. Steve and Dinah are travelling (initially in a stolen
E-Type Jag) towards an island off England's Devon coast that Dinah - young
and successful - is contemplating buying. (This island conceit must be a
straight lift from "La Dolce Vita", where the actress Marcello
character is "servicing", dreams of buying just such an
The soundtrack is surpisingly strong. There are some straightforward songs
from the Dave Clark Five, but otherwise they strive to provide something
less stamped with the band style.
Like one of the other IMDb reviewers, I would have to agree, having seen
this film, that it is actually stronger, viewed simply as a film, than "A
Hard Day's Night". (Where it obviously falls down is the fact that its
soundtrack - excellent as it actually is - is NOT by The
Don't patronise this movie, or damn it with faint praise. Don't condemn it
for not being what it isn't (a Beatles film), but rejoice in the boldness
its departure from the Cliff-Beatles formula.
The scene in Bath with Robin Bailey and Yootha Joyce is worth the price of
