Featuring: The Tommy Steele Story The Duke Wore Jeans Tommy the Toreador It’s All Happening Out on DVD for the first time, these four films comprise rock’n’roll legend Tommy Steele’s finest musical movies, with The Duke Wore Jeans having been unavailable on any format in the UK previously. As a bonus, restoration has also been completed by Studio Canal on these titles. THE TOMMY STEELE STORY (1957) In the second film in this set, we see how on the night of his greatest triumph as a musical performer whilst surrounded by press men, Tommy looks back on how he got started…. With a career in the Merchant Navy, a second hand guitar, an anonymous Calypso bar far far away – this is how the The Tommy Steele Story begins. THE DUKE WORE JEANS (1958) In The Duke Wore Jeans Tommy plays the dual roles of Prince and Pauper: as a Cockney Lad bearing an uncanny resemblance to a local Duke, Tommy is sent in the latter’s place to woo a princess from an oil-rich South American monarchy. Faced with the interference of conspiring politicians, not to mention the Princess’ own stubbornness, will Tommy win her over with his serenades? TOMMY THE TOREADOR (1959) Co-starring comedy great Sid James and Janet Munro Tommy The Toreador is full to the rafter with laughs and features a rockin’ latin soundtack. IT’S ALL HAPPENING (1963) It’s All Happening sees Tommy as a young man thwarted at work and in love, until he decides to stage a concert to save the orphanage in which he himself grew up. An unexpected near disaster provides an opportunity to prove his true worth, both as a singer, and as a human being.
