Made during the tail end of the Malay Film Productions operations in Singapore, A Go Go ’67 famously features pop yeh yeh performances of twelve groups and four dance groups. The film was shot in Singapore during the last years of the Shaw Brothers’ Malay Film Productions division marking the end of an era of Malay film production in Singapore. Fittingly, the film is an attempt by the fledging industry to appeal to the very youth culture that was a major factor in the Malay film industry’s demise. A Go Go ’67 presents viewers with an idea of the music and lifestyles of the Malay youth of the pop pop yeh yeh era albeit through the mediating gaze of a declining local commercial film industry desperately seeking a youth audience.
