Sammy's Super T-shirt 1978
58 mins United Kingdom Director. Jeremy Summers
Sammy dreams of becoming a super athlete, despite his puny build. When his lucky training t-shirt is thrown into a scientist's lab it becomes imbued with 'super strength' power. When Sammy manages to recover the t-shirt he uses his new-found strength to out-run baddies and bullies alike.
One of the best-loved efforts from the Children’s Film Foundation, Sammy’s Super T-shirt is fondly remembered for its sparkly theme song (by Harry Robinson and Frank Godwin) and despite its 1970s vibe the film won a new generation of admirers via its TV repeats during the 1980s.
