CHILDREN S FILM FOUNDATION: THE RACE IS ON Soapbox Derby The Sky-Bike Sammy's Super T-Shirt For over 30 years, The Children's Film Foundation produced quality entertainment for young audiences, employing the cream of British filmmaking talent. Newly transferred from the best available elements held in the BFI National Archive, these much-loved and fondly remembered films finally return to the screen after many years out of distribution in this specially curated DVD release from the BFI. A young Michael Crawford (Some Mothers do 'Ave 'Em) stars in Soapbox Derby as leader of the Battersea Bats. Filmed in and around south London's dockyards, this action-packed thriller features an excellent slapstick performance from Denis Shaw (The Colditz Story, Curse of the Werewolf) In The Sky-Bike, all Tom Smith can think about is becoming a pilot. When he accidentally stumbles across a prototype man-powered flying machine, he convinces its eccentric inventor, Mr Lovejoy, to let him help get it off the ground. This imaginative, air-borne adventure features character actor Liam Redmond (Night of the Demon) as the down-on-his-luck mastermind behind the flying machine. Sammy's Super T-Shirt sees our 12-year old hero setting his heart on winning the Junior Superstar Challenge Cup track race. His secret weapon, a lucky tiger t-shirt, is about to take a life of its own when it accidentally becomes part of a top-secret scientific experiment, which gives its wearer awesome super strength. Featuring a comic double-act by Richard Vernon (Goldfinger) and Julian Holloway (the Carry On series, Disney's A Christmas Carol) as the nefarious scientists, this is one of the best-remembered Children's Film Foundation productions. Special features Brand new High Definition transfers of all films. Fully illustrated booklet with essays by Andrew Roberts and Vic Pratt and a note from Michael Crawford.
