BFI brings cult 60s classic Bronco Bullfrog back to the big screen

Bronco

After steadily growing in status, Bronco Bullfrog was released on DVD by the director himself a couple uf years back. But now the BFI has got on the case, offering up a digitally restored version for the big screen. A DVD/Blu-ray is likely to follow too, although that's not been officially confirmed as yet.

The new version of the movie, which starred a cast of amateurs, is essentially a late 60s love story, two teens, Del and Irene getting together despite the opposition of their respective parents. They dull existence is livened up by the return of suedehead Bronco Bullfrog out of borstal - then made worse by his presence.

In truth, it's not as classic as many make out, but it is interesting, not least for being the only movie to capture the short-lived suedehead look on film.

The digitally restored version of Bronco Bullfrog is released on 11th June in London and around the country. Director Barney Platts-Mills will attend a preview screening at BFI Southbank on Thursday 3rd June and a special event at Curzon Soho on Saturday 19th June. Bronco Bullfrog also opens the East End Film Festival on Thursday 22nd April.

So make a note of those dates in your diary or check your local independent cinema for dates. Check out a Bronco Bullfrog gallery at our Modcuture site for some tasty stills.
