    Back To The Ace with Talking Pictures TV Sky 328 Freeview 82 Virgin 445 Freesat 306

    The Leather Boys DVD
    Restored + Exclusive 60th Anniversary Bonus Film Featuring Rita Tushingham & The Leather Boys back at the Ace.

    2024 is the 60th anniversary of the release in 1964 of the film "The Leather Boys" and, though it’s been a long time coming, it is now back in stock to include with exclusive bonus film featuring Rita Tushingham and The Leather Boys Back at the Ace.

    The cafe played a leading role in this Sidney J. Furie film, which stars Rita Tushingham, Colin Campbell & Dudley Sutton, utilising many of the cafe’s patrons as film ‘extras’.

    Shooting numerous scenes at the Ace Cafe, Furie, eager to achieve realism, took advice from the local riders. “You’d never find an Ace boy wearing them jeans” he was told one morning.

    Furie’s direction, coupled with strong performances combine to make “The Leather Boys” one of the great British films of the sixties.

    Locations, including the Ace, used in the film are shown at link:
