Music video by Duran Duran performing Girls On Film. (P) 1981 The copyright in this audiovisual recording is owned by EMI Records Ltd
"Girls on Film" is the third single by Duran Duran, released on 13 July 1981.
The single became Duran Duran's Top 10 breakthrough in the UK Singles Chart, peaking at Number 5 on 25 July. Its success was particularly gratifying for the band, who had personally selected it for release following the failure of its predecessor, "Careless Memories", which had been chosen by their record company, EMI. Its popularity provided a major boost to sales of the band's eponymous début album, Duran Duran, which had been released a month earlier.
The song did not chart in the USA on its initial release, but it became popular and widely known after receiving heavy airplay on MTV when the Duran Duran album was re-issued in 1983.
The video was made with directing duo Godley & Creme at Shepperton Studios in July 1981.
