A great 'feelgood' summer movie.
27 November 2005 | by (Brentwood, England.) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this uplifting television play in summer 1976 - to my knowledge it's only airing. It was the story of one summer spent by two London teenagers who choose very different career paths on leaving school; one becomes a car thief and the other tries a more conventional job (a plumber as I remember). The late Richard Beckinsale (father of Kate Beckinsale) played a London gangster who becomes the car thief's mentor - a very different role than that of the naive Lenny Godber that Beckinsale played in Ronnie Barker's prison sitcom 'Porridge'. The play also featured great music, I remember 'Lazer Love' by T.Rex being used as part of the soundtrack. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that we will see this joyous rites of passage movie again, since it's makers Thames Television had a nasty habit in the seventies of disposing of much of their original material to save library space.
