Review

Our Score
Having concluded they need bikes to emulate the heroics of the Knights of the Round Table, William and his outlaws decide to marry off their older brothers and inherit their cast-off cycles. First, though, they must attend to the small matter of fur smugglers operating out of a supposedly haunted house ... While William Graham captures something of the scruffy boisterousness of Richmal Crompton's timeless comic creation, director Val Guest's screenplay smoothes away the rougher edges to produce a sanitised tale of childhood mayhem, suitable for young eyes. The same paternalism dogged the sequel, William at the Circus.
