I love this movie! I had it on one of those giant video discs back in the 1980s. It is one of the best movies done from a child's point of view. Mark Lester is great as a sensitive young lad and Jack Wild is also wonderful as his more mischievous pal. I like this even better than their previous film "Oliver"
Tracy Hyde is adorable as the object of Lester's affection.
There are great shots of the streets and pubs of early 70s Britain. And it is topped off with an excellent score of songs by the Bee Gees. "Melody Fair" and "First Of May" are two of their most beautiful songs.
I would love to have this on DVD.
