| A CFF CLASSIC
I loved the Children's Film Foundation films shown at our local cinema on Saturdays. This early Lewis Gilbert film (You Only Live Twice/The Spy Who Loved Me) is about Janek, a Polish orphan living in Scotland, who gets inadvertently caught up in a burglary & runs away from the real thieves. Janek then stumbles into a group of children who are refugee orphans like himself. All the young actors give great performances as well as the grown up professional actors which include Jean Anderson & even John Laurie (Dad's Army). The film is available on the CFF compilation "Runaways" on DVD from Amazon. Worth a nostalgic watch.
