Implausible story - but helped put Birmingham on the map
17 December 2007 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Back in the late 1960's, Birmingham's canal network was in sad decline

  • with more miles of canals than Venice, this undemanding story with


tracks sung by Cliff had a reasonable story-line, but the REAL star is the City of Birmingham itself.

Since the film was made, the canal network has been given the respect it deserved and is now a working waterway, with new developments at Gas Street Basin (behind the 'Brumburger' shop) a testament to the regeneration. Since the 70's, Birmingham is probably unrecognisable, with many of the modern buildings shown already replaced.

The cast worked well, but it was often painful watching the Fox hunting scenes (now a banned activity) and seemingly added only to add some 'english quaintness' for non-native viewers.
