5.0 out of 5 stars Saturday Morning Pictures 20 July 2009
Want to revisit the time when things seemed so much simpler? Then this is the very dvd for you.
A tradition started before the war which has all but died out now it was something the kiddies looked forward to all week.The film was almost secondary as the noise and excitement would cause the film to be stopped on several occasions whilst the manager told us off and to behave or he would stop the film-the life of an usherette was definitely a miserable one on Saturday mornings.Mob mentality was the order of the day as parents did not accompany the kids.
The two films on this dvd are a true representation of that era.'The adventures of Hal 5' is the story of an old 1920's Austin car that is purchased by two children and their uncle.A man tries to streal their beloved car and sell it for lots of money but the kids are too quick for him-lots of car chases and mayhem ensue.Made in 1957 in good old B & W it's a lovely trip down memory lane.
'Egghead's Robot' is a children's Sci-fi film where a boy uses his father's robot as his double to help out in all sorts of situations which unfortunately do not always go to plan-starring a young Keith Chegwin (yes-he used to be a kiddie actor)Patricia Routledge and Roy Kinnear.
A lovely trip down memory lane-both films have their place in cinema history but it is 'The adventures of Hal' that shines here.
There are no subtitles on this dvd.
