Storyline

In a pleasant variation on "The Ransom of Red Chief," elderly crook Harry Denton, when challenged to prove he is "not past it," decides to kidnap Sheila Farlane, the 16 year old daughter of a famous actor. When Harry loses his nerve, Sheila won't let him give up. Because she is bored and ignored by her egotistical father, she becomes the mastermind of the plot. Harry's grandson Jack, who feels responsible for the old man and the girl, is shocked, and tries to return Sheila, but is thwarted by her determined fantasizing.

Early outing for Petula Clark & Anthony Newley.
15 May 1999 | by (Worcester, England.) – See all my reviews

An old lag is released from prison and stays with his grandson, returning to his criminal ways by kidnapping the daughter of a theatre actor. Bored with home life she welcomes the adventure and blackmails the lag and his grandson into continuing the plan. Tony Newley's character of a juvenile delinquent entering the plan is a delight. Good support from Anthony Steel and Jimmy Hanley. (Look out to for Dora Bryan who was uncredited!) Dated but enjoyable light musical comedy! Adapted from the play "The Wide Boy" by Tony Armstrong. Paul Goodhead - Anthony Newley Appreciation Society President.
