Production Country: UK

Featuring: Harry Fowler / Jack Warner / Alastair Sim
Running time: 82min

A group of kids discover their favourite magazine is being used by criminals to plan robberies in this joyous boy's own romp.

Synopsis

Harry Fowler leads the ‘Blood and Thunder Boys’, a group of adolescents who discover their favourite boys-own magazine is being used by criminals to plan robberies. Largely acknowledged as the first in Ealing’s cycle of post-war comedies, Hue and Cry gives us a joyfully chaotic introduction to the kind of English eccentrics who would come to characterise the later films. Giving delicious performances, Alastair Sim and Jack Warner are the old hands leading a cast of mostly newcomers.

The screening on Sunday 16 December will be introduced by Archive curator Natalie Morris
