Incorrect date of the film 'Running Jumping and Standing Still'
5 July 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw the film 'Running Jumping and Standing Still' well before 1960 at the News Cinema at London's Waterloo Railway station sometime in the 1950's, so the film shouldn't be dated at 1960. I had just arrived off a train from Camberley, Surrey and I was on my way to an assignment in the North East Scotland. To kill some time I went into the News Cinema and after the news I saw 'Running Jumping and Standing Still' after seeing it once it gripped me so much I stayed and saw it not just a second time but many times until the cinema closed for the night. Having missed my train for Scotland which had left Kings Cross around 7pm I found accommodation in London for the night and caught my train to Scotland the next evening. I made up some story about missing my train when I got to the Hotel and luckily, my editor never found out that I got to Fraserborough a day late. I got the Hotel to backdate my bill and the story was still hot. Why do I know I saw it in the 1950s, 1) The Waterloo station news cinema had been closed before 1960. 2) I got married in 1959 and I know I saw it before my marriage, in fact well before I had even met my wife. 3) In the cast were all the Goons including Harry Secombe. It was in Black and White and it was about characters flying a kite. Further research should show that I saw the film in 1954 or 55, so it must have been made before then.
