Added the CFF movie "Bungala Boys" (1961) to the database. Since it didn't seem to be available anywhere, I also uploaded my own copy of the film to my YouTube channel - I've added a link to this to the movie Profile page, but here it is anyway:

I'm a little worried that it will be removed for copyright violation - even though, so far as I know, there are no plans to make it available on DVD - but we'll see.

Looks interesting. I like the boy actor in the last pic so who are the 'Bungala Boys'? I wonder what good movies the 'Children's Film Foundation' made?

Thanks for the clips, 'diogenes'.

The 'Bungala boys' are, I suppose, the members of the Bungala life-savers' club (whom you can see in that last pic), most of them a little older than our protagonist Tony (Peter Couldwell, in the centre of the last pic) - young men rather than boys, like Tony's older brother Brian.

There's a character called Normie (Terry Bentley), who's a wonderfully aggressive cockney:

I had to add the Ealing comedy "Passport to Pimlico" to the database. It's very topical, given current political events. You may notice in the Synopsis I coined the term 'Pimlexit' to denote the process of Pimlico leaving the United Kingdom!



Here are some screencaps:

What better topic for a boy film than a boy life savers club. 'Passport to Pimlico' looks interesting if only for the old fashioned gear boys wore then. That looks like a young Charles Hawtrey in the checked shirt.

Thanks for the clips, 'diogenes'.

I have uploaded the documentary film "The Billy Elliot Boy" (2001) to my YouTube channel. I've added the link to the movie profile page, but here it is:

I recorded the documentary off the screen when it was shown on BBC4. The video is very old, so the picture quality is not brilliant. To my knowledge - and rather surprisingly - this documentary has never been made available on DVD or blu-ray.

I've added "Tomka and His Friends" (1977) to the database, and I've also added the film - with English subtitles - to my YouTube channel:

If nothing else, you have to see the dance the boys do at about 46:15. It's pretty amazing.

Also added a Gallery of screencaps to the movie Profile page. Here are some of them:
