Standees are made to boost the film's marketing, as they have real impact in cinema foyers.

Owing to the size and fragility of standees they were hard to store, and most were discarded.

This film was Franc Roddam's feature film directional debut. It is set in 1964 and follows Jimmy (Phil Daniels), a Mod from London, who breaks free from his boring life and annoying parents to join his friends and fellow Mods as they ride their scooters, party, and get caught up in a huge fight. All is not perfect as he discovers. The film provides an insight into the youth culture of the time. The cast also includes Leslie Ash, Toyah, Philip Davis, Mark Wingett, Sting, and Ray Winstone.
