Christopher Miles directs this 1960s British musical starring Frank Ifield as a young Australian singer who arrives in London seeking fame and fortune. Never one to set himself low targets, one of the first things Dave Kelly (Ifield) does, upon his arrival in London, is fall in love with a beautiful model he sees on a billboard. He subsequently divides his time between pursuing his singing career and pursuing the girl in question, Melissa Smythe-Fury (Suzy Kendall). However, will he find that happiness can exist in much less exotic forms than glamour and stardom?
