Public Information Filler 1976 mins
David Prowse, the frame (but not voice) of Darth Vader in the original Star Wars (1977-1983) movies, appears as the iconic Green Cross Code Man (iconic is a much overused word but here it really is apt, at least to children of the 70s). Here the man in green tights heaps praise upon a young GXC expert.
