In the mid to late 1960s, Cantonese coming-of-age musicals stirred up a new wave of sensation as popular teen idols like Connie Chan Po-chu, Josephine Siao Fong-fong and Nancy Sit Kar-yin picked up the torch from ‘Jade Girl' Patricia Lam Fung and became new generation silver screen sweethearts who can act, sing and dance. While Mandarin musical films were also prevalent, Summer and Spring won over movie-goers with its more approachable and relatable Cantonese songs. Connie Chan Po-chu and Lui Kay, who played a pair of sweet lovebirds, were also the most beloved silver screen duo of the time. In the film, the onscreen couple captivated audiences with many exotic singing and dancing performances. The dreamy and romantic scene where they sang a Cantonese version of Edith Piaf's ‘La Vie En Rose' and danced against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower is no doubt a mesmerising and memorable sequence.
