(from the rear of the DVD cover) When the Famous Five are asked to look after Wilfred, a lonely orphan with a magical ability to communicate with animals, they have no idea of what exciting adventures lie in store. Wilfred is determined to investigate rumours of dastard deeds at a supposed animal 'sanctuary' on the mysterious Whispering Island. He sets off to investigate with four-footed Famous Five member Tim the dog, and the rest of the gang are not far behind. But will they be in time to save the day?
Didi, I envy you so very much for having been to the BFI in London on 8/2/09 and being able to watch this Blyton movie! Why is the CFTF not making commercial copies on DVD???
Watched this in the mid to late sixties on German TV and was always trying to find a copy. Is there anybody out there who has one and would be willing to make a copy for me? I'm looking for this one for more than 40 years. This would be a dream come true! My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The British Children's Film Foundation (CFF) produced lots of very good and very thrilling movies for kids in the fifties and until the mid sixties. Everything that has been made after 1966 is unfortunately not nearly as good as the early black & white films.
Rank Screen Services and Rayant Pictures were among the movie production companies who made movies for CFF.
The CFF has been founded by Mary Field.
