This is not so much a review of the film "The 14" it's more a report on how shocked I was when I read that Jack Wild had died, and HOW he died
very sad. I work for Channel Nine in Sydney, Australia and this film
was aired on their GEM network which shows a lot of old and sometimes obscure movies. If you want to watch a well made and moving film then this is it. Apart from the performances I think the Directing by David Hemmings is superb.
I read recently that Jack Wild sent an open letter to Daniel Radcliffe warning him of the perils of becoming a child star. I hope he heeds his warning.
