As other reviewers of this film have noted - it was memorable. I saw this film every time I went to see Raiders of the Lost Ark when it was first released in Australia. This short was shown at every session (I don't know why). However, as I saw "Raiders" numerous times - I also saw The Dollar Bottom a lot. It was a clever film with great performances from the child actors and I would love to see it again. I have remembered it all these years and think that is testament to how well made it was and the clever story. As already stated it was the story of an English boarding school and the student who decides to start an insurance scheme for caning (a common practice in the school). I cannot remember all the details of the story but suffice to say it was an entertaining short and well deserving of the awards it won.
