Head and shoulders above usual Children's Film Foundation fare
2 June 2020 | by jameshardingSee all my reviews

A very imaginative and well-paced (but a little silly) crime drama from 1977 where diamond thieves steal remote controlled model aeroplanes and then use them to smuggle diamonds. It's not exactly Snakes On A Plane, but it doesn't need to be.

It's now finally available on DVD from BFI in their "Children's Film Foundation Bumper Box Vol. 2".
