Finders Keepers is a 1966 British musical film directed by Sidney Hayers, written by Michael Pertwee and starring Cliff Richard. It was released in the U.S. the following year. A search was made to find an actress to play the Spanish girl who falls for Cliff. The 21-year-old Viviane Ventura won the role: born in London, but fluent in Spanish, she sang a spirited duet in the film with Cliff: Paella.

Cliff and The Shadows travel to a Spanish town for a gig. When they arrive they are puzzled to find the area empty. They find out that a small bomb has accidentally been dropped on the town and the villagers have fled in panic that it will go off. The boys decide to find the bomb and restore peace in the village, with some musical numbers along the way.

    Finders Keepers (1966 film) Finders Keepers Review 1966

    The Radio Times described the film as a "dismal romp" which "marked the end of Cliff's screen collaboration with the Shadows"; while Variety wrote, "Michael Pertwee’s screenplay does not build up much urgency or suspense but provides opportunity for colorful fiesta, a gentle romance between Richard and Ventura, some verbal dueling between Robert Morley and Graham Stark"; and Sky Movies noted, "Peggy Mount and Robert Morley (For #10,000, I'd walk naked down Horse Guards Parade') provide formidable comedy support for the stars."


    Music and lyrics by The Shadows. Songs include: "Finders Keepers," "Washerwoman," "My Way," "Paella," "La, La, La," "Fiesta," and "Time Drags By."
