5.0 out of 5 stars Where are the real adventure movies from CFF?, 10 Aug 2012
This review is from: Children's Film Foundation Collection: London Tales (The Salvage Gang | Operation Third Form | Night Ferry)(DVD) (DVD)
I watched all three films on "London Tales" and also am delighted with the bonus material which was a first. Nice booklet, too!

BUT how much longer will fans have to wait for the great CFF masterpieces like "Mystery in the Mine", "Fourwinds Island", "Five Clues to Fortune", "Ambush at Devil's Gap", "The Young Jacobites" and "The Secret Cave"?
I wonder if I will be able to watch those once more in my life time? I'm waiting for these films since 1969...

I've got The Firefighters (1974) on a 16mm optical print.

Thank you for responding.
I have to admit that I never heard about a CFF movie called "The Firefighters". It has been filmed when I was already an adult.

Actually I only look for those CFF films that I loved so much when I was a child in the sixties (Mystery in the Mine, Fourwinds Island, Five Clues to Fortune etc).
IMHO the CFF movies from the fifties were the best. Very suspenseful, great soundtracks and beautiful location either on the coast or on an island or in a castle (and usually a treasure involved :).

Hi, I remember Mystery in the Mine as it was shown as a serial when I used to go to the Saturday morning pics. It was in black and white. I started going in 1973 and it cost 5p to get in to the Southend ABC.
