When the children are eating breakfast, the height of Charles's egg changes between shots. This is because, once he's eaten it, Charlie reverses the empty shell in the egg-cup, and then starts hitting it with a spoon, pretending it's another uneaten egg. See more »
One of my favourite english films. Beautifully portraying rural Lancashire life in the sixties. The story is touching and marvellously played by all the children involved. One of the few films that can bring a tear to my eye, maybe because it reminds me of the child I once was in the sixties, but probably because it is a moving film and I suspect it would have the same affect on a native New Yorker. One of those old classics that if you haven't seen yet, you will be pleasantly surprised when you get round to it. You can take it as recommended!
