Up till the 1970s many cinemas in the UK had a children's Saturday morning show.This would tend to comprise of a couple of shorts and a feature.Now sometimes this feature would be a western with Roy Rogers or a comedy by Laurel & Hardy.Sometimes it would be a feature by the Children's Film Foundation.This was an organisation which was I recall financed by the National Film Finance Company.The leading roles were always played by children.Some went on to a career as an adult such as Dennis Waterman.The adult actors appeared for scale.Directors at a loose end also worked for scale and included the likes of Michael Powell.Some of these films are now being shown on Talking Pictures and are quite entertaining.
