The Boys

The Boys was a 1962 British courtroom drama film, directed by Sidney J. Furie and with a screenplay by Stuart Douglass, starring Robert Morley.

In the film, a night watchman at a garage is found murdered, and four “teddy boys” are put on trial for the crime. Witnesses and suspects give differing accounts of the lead-up to the crime, and the truth eventually emerges.

The Shadows recorded the soundtrack for the film. In the UK, four tracks were released on an EP in 1962 and was number one for three weeks there. In Australia, “The Boys” was paired with “The Girls” (also from the film) as a single and topped the charts there.

My arrangement largely follows the Shadows original.
