PG Certificate


Our Score
Barbara Murray plays a dogmatic social worker dealing with underprivileged children who enlists the help of electrician Max Bygraves as an assistant. And it's Max who saves the day when a bereaved child goes on the run with the kids of a murderer and a gun. Neither as melodramatic as it sounds, nor all doom and gloom, this is a decent attempt at realism, directed in quasi-documentary style by Lewis Gilbert. In a huge cast, the children take top honours.


A group of children go on the run from social workers after their mother commits suicide. Drama, starring Max Bygraves and Barbara Murray.
