| Long ago viewing of unforgettable film
It is well over 30 years since I saw this film, and from time to time have tried to track it down within this IMDB system, but, until now, due to its title (I've always identified it as "The Pony Cart", the title of the original play),was frustrated in my search.

I'm a bit hazy about some of the details, but I do remember it being a gritty cautionary tale of two missing children...it is grimly realistic, without being exploitive, and years ahead of its time, in warning of, when it comes to children's safety, who can one trust?

Its story is set in Canada, thus leading me to the impression that it was a Canadian production - it is, in fact, English, and all concerned did a splendid job with a harrowing tale.

I can't recall ever seeing it advertised as appearing on t.v., or anywhere else, so it maybe it's gone where many other good films go - celluloid heaven, leaving us with lots of garbage which drifts around forever.
