Trivia

Mount Road, Pickering Road, Vale Road and most of Douglas Road in Parkwood Springs where Jane and Don live (used as locations in this film), have been demolished and the area returned to hilly grassland, so the area has changed out of all recognition. See more »

Pigeons in the Steelworks
10 April 2021 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Once again a later blonde sixties sex bomb makes an early appearance as a toothy teenager in a ponytail when The Children's Film Foundation took Judy Geeson up north to Sheffield in winter to make this whimsical little adventure combining pigeons and industrial espionage against the backdrop of a real steel foundry as a backdrop. Meanwhile on the soundtrack the attractive clarinet score goes all percussive when villainy rears it's ugly head to make a grab for "the secret of a new alloy" which serves as the film's MacGuffin.
