Plot Summary

A semi-autobiographical project by John Boorman about a nine year old boy called Bill as he grows up in London during the blitz of World War 2. For a young boy, this time in history was more of an adventure, a total upheaval of order, restrictions and discipline. The liberating effect of the war on the women left behind. And the joy when Hitler blows up your school. Written by Colin Tinto

Trivia A 650 feet long suburban street set with seventeen semi-detached houses was constructed for this movie. Apparently, at the time at least, it was the largest set built in the UK for twenty-five years. See more »
Goofs The man is incorrect when he tells the boy that they (the Nazis) will be bombing France with Big Bertha which has a range of 25 miles. Big Bertha was a nickname given to a gun the Germans constructed in the first World War. It was made by welding 3 gun barrels together which gave it a range of 75 miles. See more »
