Forgotten family fun classic
24 April 2017 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this rare film theatrically on a re-release in the late 1960's and loved it. Well, I was about the same age as the boy in the film, so I really connected to the characters. I remember the wonderful vivid colour photography and overall fun story of a family (without mom) having multiple disasters on holiday in an old windmill. I think I may have seen this on BBC TV once in the 1970's, but that was it. The film appears to have completely disappeared. I wonder why? Anyway, I recommend it if you ever have a chance to see it. Kenneth More delivers as always, as does the entire cast. I do have an unofficial DVD from an old VHS copy of an old VHS recording and can only dream of seeing it properly again remastered in HD.
