Shortly before he left EMI for Ember, John Barry appeared as himself in It's All Happening. This film musical was basically a vehicle for Tommy Steele and quite likely part of the lure to acquire him from his lengthy stay with the rival record label, Decca.
In the film, Barry is seen conducting an orchestra which accompanied fellow EMI artistes Johnny De Little (a Barry protege) and American visitor Dick Kallman in (mock) studio recording sessions.
Apart from this on-screen appearance, Barry also arranged and accompanied songs by Tommy Steele and Marion Ryan.
Also appearing in the film were EMI artistes Shane Fentone (later better known as Alvin Stardust), The Clyde Valley Stompers, Carol Deene, Russ Conway, Danny Williams and Geoff Love. Barry did work with Conway and Williams on record, but not on this occasion.
