Just for Fun is a 1963 British black and white musical film directed by Gordon Flemyng.[1] It was written by Amicus co-founder Milton Sobotsky.[2]

When English teenagers win the right to vote, the established political parties compete for their support. However, when the Prime Minister cuts the amount of Pop music allowed on TV, young Mark and Cherry start their own 'Teenage Party' and use some of England's pop singers to help.

Critical reception[edit]

TCM wrote, "episodic in the extreme, Just for Fun plays like an evening of Vaudeville, with the various singing acts punctuated by broad comic bits that are more miss than hit but retain, at least at this distance, an undeniable vintage charm...sweet relief comes in the form of the assembled musical talent, whose contributions are well-staged by director Gordon Flemyng."[3]
