A baby from Venus saves the day with his superpowers in this charming sci-fi tale produced by the Children's Film Foundation.
Children's 1956 51 mins Not rated
Director: Guy Fergusson
The recipe for a successful Children's Film Foundation production: take a peaceful rural setting and fill with an equal mix of boys and girls (two of each will suffice). Add a bunch of crooks, a gentle moral, a chase, and a reward. For added flavour, director Tom Wells (son of H.G. Wells) spices up an old formula with a sprinkling of science-fiction in the form of a friendly alien creature. Enjoy!
