THESE two Jeff Christie songs were used in the movie Outer Touch, an English sex comedy released in 1979.
   Renamed Spaced Out, it was released on DVD in the US in 2006 and in Europe in August 2007. Curiously, it stars Barry Stokes, who was also the principal actor in a movie called The Ups and Downs of a Handyman, which featured music by Vic Elmes!
   The premise surrounds a spaceship full of spacewomen landing on Earth for repairs. The crew, never having seen men before, soon discover that men can give them something they never ever dreamed of. It is a fun little farce that has its critics but also some fans who regard it as a cult film.
   Jeff recalls: "After the solo album was completed, the co-producer told me that two of the tracks were featured in this film which I eventually saw on release when it played at the now-defunct Plaza cinema in Leeds. I remember sitting through this 'serious art house' film with a mixture of embarrasment and excitement, waiting to hear my songs played on the silver screen over a big cinema sound system and at one of Leeds' then major cinemas. The Plaza would often play risque movies and I went to the matinee performance and sort of crept in hoping no one would see me. It was a thrill hearing the songs in that context, but can't say the same for the script, plot, or acting. Another notch on the bedpost though, and when I really wanted to write for movies, it was a start!
   "I don't recall being paid anything, but RK records still were hoping to get the album released and I suppose if that would have happened everything would have been registered and I might've got something."
