The Reviews for Take Me High (1974) 720p


Implausible story - but helped put Birmingham on the mapReviewed byokonskiVote: 7/10

Back in the late 1960's, Birmingham's canal network was in sad decline - with more miles of canals than Venice, this undemanding story with tracks sung by Cliff had a reasonable story-line, but the REAL star is the City of Birmingham itself.

Since the film was made, the canal network has been given the respect it deserved and is now a working waterway, with new developments at Gas Street Basin (behind the 'Brumburger' shop) a testament to the regeneration. Since the 70's, Birmingham is probably unrecognisable, with many of the modern buildings shown already replaced.

The cast worked well, but it was often painful watching the Fox hunting scenes (now a banned activity) and seemingly added only to add some 'english quaintness' for non-native viewers.

Unusual musical set in BirminghamReviewed bylouiseculmerVote: 7/10

This is not the best known of Cliff Richard's films, but personally I like it very much. Cliff plays an ambitious young businessman helping a girl who lives on a narrow-boat to start her own restaurant. Deborah Watling is charming as the young chef, and George Cole and Hugh Griffith provide strong comic support, with Anthony Andrews suitably suave as Cliff's rival. The songs are good, especially the title song Take Me High. The most striking thing about the film though is the Birmingham location, i don't think there are many films set in Birmingham, and I imagine very few musicals, possibly this film is unique in that respect. Birmingham is not the most picturesque of cities, but this film shows it in quite an attractive light, especially the canal scenes. Altogether this is a charming film.

take me high starring cliff Richard 1973 by mtReviewed bymichaeltyler898Vote: 10/10

i was introduced to 'take me high' by a friend and avid cliff fan. i was sceptical at first but soon got absorbed by the plot and songs and as i herald from Birmingham i found the scenery of 'yesteryear' Brum just hypnotic. the 'Jiggedy Jaggedy' buildings are still there today! the film has fantastic moments like the hilarious way cliff discovers gas street (by folding a map into 4 pieces)and saying...."gas street!!!" and the Clifftastic 'winning' its just a must.and the way he converts his barge into a floating mansion is superb.great cameos from George Cole and the ever-young Anthony Andrews make this film a must see. Cliffs least known work but surely his best as his great voice and zany personality shine through.

i only wish there was a Brumburger in real life as it looks lovely!!
