The Children’s Film Foundation Collection Volume Two: The Race Is On
The BFI presents three more classics kids’ films from the much loved Children’s Film Foundation.
Cult favourite Sammy’s Super T-Shirt (1978) – arguably the most sought after gem in the CFF library – finally comes to DVD, accompanied by two other classics from the collection. Sammy dreams of becoming a super athlete, despite his puny build. When his lucky training t-shirt is thrown into a scientist’s lab it becomes imbued with ‘super strength’ power. When Sammy manages to recover the t-shirt he uses his new-found strength to out-run baddies and bullies alike.
Soapbox Derby (1957), sees a young Michael Crawford scrapping with a rival South London gang in Battersea, while The Sky-Bike (1967) stars Liam Redmond as an eccentric inventor trying to achieve more than just speed.
Directed by Charles Frend and Jeremy Summers.
