The Boys (and the Girls)

The Boys was a 1962 British courtroom drama film, directed by Sidney J. Furie, with a screenplay by Stuart Douglass, and 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 1962, four tracks from the movie (including “The Boys” and “The Girls”) were released on an EP in the UK ; it was number one for three weeks there. In Australia, “The Boys” was paired with “The Girls” as a single and topped the charts there.

Here is my versions of “The Boys” and right below it, “The Girls”.
