Storyline

Jackie throws his schoolbook out the window in disgust, but then climbs outside to retrieve it. Finding himself locked out, he tries various means of getting back inside without his parents finding out. When his parents mistake his noises for a burglar, a local policeman is called, but he seems incompetent to catch either the phony burglar or the real one who has shown up in the meantime.

Middling results in early Gang talkie effort
11 February 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

When I grew up watching "When the Wind Blows" on television, I had no idea Farina was in the film. All his scenes showing his home life and him being scared were deleted. While this was done out of sensitivity to modern viewers, a lot is missed when viewing the TV version. And besides, several of the other kids are shown scared, so why not Farina?

Jackie gets locked out of his house on a cold and windy night. Kennedy the Cop makes things worse as usual by thinking there is a burglar loose. Jackie attempts to climb into Mary Ann's window, but to no avail.

A decent Gang outing, but not an important one in the series. 6 out of 10.
