Trivia

This film, set in a London grammar school during the 1940s, was filmed at two English schools.

Goofs

When Alan, Ann and Geoffrey walk home from school after rehearsing for the school play, the top deck of a modern (probably late 1970s) double-decker bus is visible at the far end of the alley. In the same scene, opposite the side-road that leads to the alley, is a modern Warboys-design (post-1964) "no cycling" sign. See more »

P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang
9 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang. Some people may perceive this film as sweet and adorable but they have to be completely (or almost) entirely mistaken. P'tang, Yang, Kipperbang is probably the most overrated stories of all time: after I watched it, I found myself wanting an hour of my life back. No need to fear however, liberation is coming, in a few decades this film will become outdated and left on a shelf to rot. Don't make the same mistake as I did: DON'T WATCH THIS FILM! Watch some good films like the Godfather trilogy (excluding number 3 which is essentially about incest), Shawshank Redemption, the Good,the Bad,the Ugly, the Dark Knight, Inception, Argo, the Untouchables, Gladiator...Don't get me started and don't waste a single brain cell on P'tang yang kipper bang. It's utter crap,
