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.




Peter Couldwell in "Bungala Boys":

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:

On the page for "Scared Stiff" (1987), I've replaced the link to the trailer with a link to a much better (HD) trailer. Here it is:

(You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

It looks like enormous fun, and I think I'm going to have to watch the film. Just one observation about the trailer - when the black guy who's driving a car sees a monster in the back seat and panics, he screams like a girl.

From the trailer:

Thanks for the clips of these films, 'diogenes'. Much appreciated and good to know there is still someone posting on BA because it's pretty quiet at the moment.   Cheesy

Added a 'Watch the Film on YouTube' link to the movie page for "O" (2006), if anyone's interested.

And the 4800th film to be added to the database is....



...a Children's Film Foundation classic, starring a 15-year-old Michael Crawford (though his voice doesn't seem to have broken yet). Here are some caps:

I'm going through my CFF collection, so there might be more CFF films on the way.... though I'm also eager to start viewing the DVD set I've acquired of the Australian miniseries "Brides of Christ"!! (No boys in that, of course, just scary nuns - though my Catholic compadre assures me that all nuns are scary!)

Thanks, 'diogenes', for the clips from 'Soapbox Derby' which I seem to remember. I like the boy on the right in pic 1, now there's proper shorts.

Updated the page for the long running Soviet-Russian children's comedy series "Yeralash", adding links to some funny and interesting episodes on YouTube, often involving ill-fated encounters with the opposite sex - well worth a look!
