Take It or Leave It
"Take It or Leave It" was produced in 1981 and directed by the owner of Madness label
Stiff Records, Dave Robinson, who also directed the band's music videos.
Madness paid £20,000 each towards the film's budget (£140,000 in total paid by the band) and the rest of the £250,000 was paid by Stiff.

The film has a documentary-style to it, yet is funny throughout and very enjoyable.
At first, some of the band members seem a little nervous/uncomfortable around the cameras, but seeing as they had only made music videos before this, that isn't surprising.
Highly recommended.Mad Ems
