  • Description

    The late Tony Scott stars in an atmospheric first film by his older brother Ridley, as a schoolboy playing truant for the day in Hartlepool. One of composer John Barry's more surprising mid-1960s credits was for this low-budget short film by a promising young director named Ridley Scott. He had shot the film silently on 16mm when still a student at the Royal College of Art, and three years later he managed to raise funds from the BFI to assemble a soundtrack. He approached Barry for permission to use a recording named 'Onward Christian Spacemen', which proved to be unaffordable - but Barry was so impressed by Scott's work that he recorded a new version especially for the film.
