Friday vintage video: Christopher Lee...

..."as the man who makes a living from striptease clip-joints!" wow!

I was looking up something on beatniks for a post on my personal blog, and I came across this trailer from the movie "Wild for Kicks" which also went under the title of "Beat Girl" in the U.S. It was pretty common for films to have one title in the U.K. and another in the U.S. (as it was for exploitation filmmakers to re-title films to get a little extra mileage out of them.) This is a U.K. production--hence singer Adam Faith in the film. It's also noteworthy because of Christopher Lee--who, for one of the few times in a 1950's film, isn't playing Dracula, Frankenstein, or some other weird Baron or Lord for Hammer.
