"Cliff Richard: Rare and Unseen"

MVD Visual and Wienerworld report that the new DVD "Cliff Richard- Rare And Unseen" will receive a North American release, July 27:

"...'Cliff Richard "Rare and Unseen"' takes an inside look at the talented, charismatic, singer-songwriter and actor who dominated the British popular music scene in the late 1950's and early 1960's, before and during The Beatles' first year in the charts.

"From his UK chart-topping successes to being a TV and film personality, Richard has made his mark in the entertainment industry, playing, recording and conquering the planet for five decades - noted as the only artist to have had a number one single in the UK in five consecutive decades, doing so from the 1950's through to the 1990's..."

The collection of rare footage features original film/videos of the singer, including newsreels/photographs from private collections.
