Theme from “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.

The original “theme” is pretty heavily produced and accompanied by the Norrie Paramor strings. In my arrangement I tried to preserve the feel of the original while presenting it as the Shadows might have performed it live, with just the four of them.
