Catch Us If You Can (1965, GBR) B&W-91m. ** D: John Boorman. Starring Dave Clark, Barbara Ferris, Lenny Davidson, Rick Huxley, Mike Smith. Attempt to cash in on success of the Beatles' A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (1964) is only notable for being director Boorman's first movie. Pop group The Dave Clark Five is forgotten by now, and story (Clark and Ferris run away to find an island) is too episodic. Lightweight, none too entertaining. Boorman followed this with the terrific POINT BLANK (1967). Released in the U.S. as HAVING A WILD WEEKEND.
