Tommy the Toreador

Tailored for the talents of Tommy Steele, Tommy the Toreador emerges as a brisk, disarming little comedy. Steele plays a young seaman who gets stranded in Spain and through a string of highly fortuitous circumstances gets conned into making a one-performance-only appearance as a toreador.

Tailored for the talents of Tommy Steele, Tommy the Toreador emerges as a brisk, disarming little comedy. Steele plays a young seaman who gets stranded in Spain and through a string of highly fortuitous circumstances gets conned into making a one-performance-only appearance as a toreador.

Janet Munro is Steele’s girl friend in the picture. She has little to do that’s demanding but she has a fresh, likable personality and strikes up a happy partnership with Steele. Major disappointment is Sidney James. This time he has little opportunity and, saddled with a broken Spanish accent, he seems justifiably unhappy with his role of a bullfight promoter. However, his partner, Bernard Cribbins, scores a distinct success.

Steele puts over half a dozen cheerful songs written by Lionel Bart, Michael Pratt and Jimmy Bennett.
