Did You Know?


All copies of the film were thought to be lost until an American film fan found a copy in a rubbish skip outside a Chicago television studio. He sold it to a UK enthusiast who showed it for the first time in fifty years on 8 March 2002 in the village hall at Goudhurst, Kent where it was originally filmed. See more »

Looking for a copy of this CFF film
7 August 2009 | by (Massachusetts, US) – See all my reviews

Watched this in the mid to late sixties on German TV and was always trying to find a copy. Is there anybody out there who has one and would be willing to make a copy for me? I'm looking for this one for more than 40 years. This would be a dream come true! My e-mail address is waldenpond88@hotmail.com.

The British Children's Film Foundation (CFF) produced lots of very good and very thrilling movies for kids in the fifties and until the mid sixties. Everything that has been made after 1966 is unfortunately not nearly as good as the early black & white films.

Rank Screen Services and Rayant Pictures were among the movie production companies who made movies for CFF.

The CFF has been founded by Mary Field.

This film was on the German channel Pro7 in the summer of 1989. Unfortunately I missed recording it. I hope somebody was smarter than me, recorded it and later transfered it to DVD.
