Sheffield swings to the sound of disco in "Whatever Happened to Harold Smith?," a well-cast Brit comedy set in "the year of the 'Fever.'Variety
Harold Smith, a quiet middle-aged Englishman becomes an instant celebrity when he suddenly starts exhibiting psychic and telekinetic powers. After he is arrested for accidentally killing three pensioners by causing their pacemakers to stop, his lawyer brings in an extremely sceptical scientist to test whether or not Harold’s powers are real. Meanwhile, Harold’s son Vince, a disco devotee, is pining for his co-worker Joanna, who also happens to be the daughter of the scientist testing Vince’s dad.
