Night Ferry has recently been released on DVD in the UK as part of
BFI's Children's Film Foundation Collection. I quite enjoyed this one.
3 children try to foil a robbery involving a tomb and Ejyption mummy. These are being kept by a gang in a lock up in Clapham and the gang are intending to smuggle them abroad. So, there is now plenty of chasing and train rides including a trip on the London-Paris Night Ferry service...
An excellent little movie, the best things about this are the location shots including Victoria Station and a rather rundown area of Clapham. With loads of train scenes, this should also appeal to railway enthusiasts like myself. We get to see what could be some of the final moving footage of the Night Ferry service before it was axed in 1980.
A good cast includes the excellent Bernard Cribbens (The Wombles, The Railway Children, Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD) and Aubrey Morris as 2 of the gang members.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
I will post a review of any film that I've seen, that at time of my
posting lacks one, what follows is my brief note I made when I saw the
film on Aug 14th 1993 on Irish TV (RTE2)...
Watchable CFF (children's film foundation) film in which a few kids attempt to foil a plan to steal an Egyptian mummy and sneak it out of the country.
I can't add anything now almost 20 years on I don't recall it, I would point out that though it may have been used as part of a TV series in the USA these CFF films were made for and shown in the cinema in the UK. If you think that I have written too much that is about my review, rather than the review itself, then I agree but for reasons I don't understand IMDb insist that reviews be a minimum of 10 lines! Why?
