johnny on the run
6 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i actually took part in this film when i was 13years old as an extra. i was at queen victoria school dunblane in stirlingshire. we were asked to take part in this as cross country runners at loch earn. and i tripped and fell and sprained my ankle and fingers actor Micheal balfour picked me up to carry me back up the side of loch earn. and the director told him to put me down and get on with the film. i enjoyed the film as an extra. and as watching the film. i would like to trace this film if it was possible? well worth watching. the film is about two villains using a boy small enough to go through the fanlight windows and steal valuables. archie downie.
