Charming children's film
29 February 2016 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is really a film aimed at a children's audience which is maybe why I didn't go to see it when it was released.Then again it may be that it only got a limited release on the National circuit.Directed by Ealing alumni Charles Crichton and featuring just two actors familiar to UK audiences in Warren Mitchell and George Coulouris.There is a lot of Spanish location work with the interiors and a lot of post sync- hing done at Pinewood..The story is a bit simple minded with the child stealing money from the bank where he works in order to pay for the repairs to his father's dog.Throughout his adventures he is accompanied by a rather fetching terrier.
