extra in film
11 February 2012 | by (yorkshire) – See all my reviews

this film brings back memories because the first part of the film was made in the village i lived in, and my friend and i was extras on the bus taking the main character out of the valley. I got the princely sum of one pound. The bus belonged to my friends uncle and we had to do the scene about twenty times to get it right we also had a fire engine spraying water for it to look like rain. Iwould love to see this film but don't know where to purchase it from. Is the one Patsey Kensitt making the same film i seem to have seen a film with the same title with her starring in it, I was surprised to see that Terence Alexander was not the main star as i only remembered him and Janet Munro at the time.
