Obviously my score is going to be affected by the fact my mum took me to see it at about age 6, but for a kid who grew up in the East End not 2 miles from where all the action was filmed, it was all fantastically romantic and absorbing.
My abiding memory is of the boy sleeping in the tower, away from all adults, independent and living the dream.
(Completely far-fetched of course as the place has always been locked down like Fort Knox, but still.)
Would love to see it again, I may ask the BFI if I can see it in one of their viewing rooms (you can, apparently, ask to do this).
