  • Extended description

    Patrick Kavanagh has his usual pertinent observations to make this week about films. But he also takes a passing glance at the most recent phenomenon from Liverpool - the Beatles.

    Kavanagh comments that "So far the Irish have not produced a guitaring ensemble of sufficiently outrageous codology. I saw the Clancy Brothers on the television and somehow they hadn't that final touch of nerve and neck which is required".
    (RTV Guide, 1 November 1963, Vol. 2, No. 101, p.4)
