Timely rescue
A fondly remembered film from my youth and one I’ve re-visited more than once since, it still charms me today. A delightful and thrilling fantasy, it plays almost as well to adults as to its no doubt target audience of children.

The Dickensian-styled story is well-wrought with a nice blend of mystery, enchantment and adventure throughout. Sympathetically and winningly directed by British character actor Lionel Jeffries who gives himself a brief expository scene too, it’s a perfect example of family entertainment.

All the principal characters are well-played, especially Laurence Naismith as the twinkle eyed title character, out to right wrongs from a hundred years before and Diana Dors as an over-the-top scheming harridan figure whose plans the amazing Mr B thwarts with the help of two young children from the future. All the child-actors act very well and for the most part avoid the usual wooden-ness in similar portrayals.

I won’t give away any of the ingenious plot but it all resolves and revolves around a race to save a young heir and his sister from being murdered in a deliberately-set house fire in a plot devised by Dors and acted upon by her simpleton husband. In fact the film just tails off a little after its fiery climax, although it redeems itself with a happy ending and an unusual but warm-hearted end-credit sequence wholly in keeping with what has gone before. There’s a fine understated score by Elmer Berstein too.

It probably helps that this film evokes my happy child-hood but watching it again forty years on, I’m pleased to say I enjoyed it just as much as I did in a Glasgow flea-pit in 1973.

Classic British family film that leaves a lasting impression
I first saw this film at the cinema in 1972, and thought at the time it was the best film I’d ever seen – in fact I watched it twice that day! Now, all these years later it’s still one of my all-time favorites.

Directed by Lionel Jeffries as a follow-up to his very successful ‘Railway Children’ movie 2 years’ before, it’s also a charming period piece set in the Edwardian era, but this time with very a clever plot concerning time travel and ghosts.

His direction is first-class, despite obvious budget restrictions, and it seems a pity this movie wasn’t so well-received at the box-office as his previous film, as I think it’s even better. Once again the casting and performances are perfect too.

There is excellent brooding atmosphere about the derelict mansion the family are mysteriously hired to caretake by the Amazing Mr Blunden… he has placed them there in order to right a terrible wrong of 100 years’ past. The suspense builds up to an exciting climax with the terrible fire of 100 years before played out again – and we are left to wonder if history really has been changed this time.

The music score is fantastic too – one of the best ever in my view, and one of the film’s many highlights is the unforgettable performance of Diana Dors as the awful and scary hag-like housekeeper Mrs Wickens.

This is simply an excellent family film that leaves a lasting impression. I showed it to my son when he was 7, and he was absolutely captivated by it – just as I had been in the cinema all those years ago. He actually calls it ‘The Ghost Children’ – a title that I feel would have served the film better, and perhaps would have maybe drawn attention more to its supernatural elements.
