A gem of a DvD that shows some quite weird examples of past British children's films. It's a pity that there is nothing similar today to focus on some excellent acting but, more importantly, directing. Even some of the effects are breathtaking considering the technology available at the time; eg the Boy Who Turned Yellow is a real triumph.

The last collaboration of the great filmic duo of Powell and Pressburger (The Archers) would be interesting for that alone, but the award-winning little film happens to be great fun and delightfully quirky, aided by glimpses of a bygone London (notably the Tower).

And their contribution does tend to tower over the other two though all the filmic contributions are worth a look if you like at least attempts at thought-provoking, challenging children's cinema.

Not the best of the CFF DVDs released. Interesting for sure, & if you like CFF you'll like it, but not the best.

...and "Five Clues to Fortune" aka "The Treasure at Woburn Abbey? Or "The Young Jacobites" with Francesca Annis from 1960???

Each time when BFI releases another triple DVD with 3 CFF movies, I am disappointed, because they keep ignoring the really good and suspenseful CFF movies for kids from the 50's and early 60's and two of their movies are usually from the 70's when CFF was not producing good stuff any longer.

Well, hopefully next time...
