Whistle Down the Wind (1961)

Whistle Down the Wind is a 1961 British film, directed by Bryan Forbes, screenplay by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall, from the novel by Mary Hayley Bell.

Hayley Mills as Kathy Bostock
Bernard Lee as Mr. Bostock
Alan Bates as The Man
Norman Bird as Eddie

The script was based on a novel of the same name by Mary Hayley Bell, and her daughter, Hayley Mills, played the leading role. Alan Bates, in his first starring film role, played the man in the barn. Local schoolchildren from the villages around Burnley and Clitheroe, Lancashire were used as extras and in particular children from Chatburn Primary School played the "disciples" in the film. The theme music from the film, by Malcolm Arnold, became a classic.

The film contrasts the children's innocent faith with the pragmatic and suspicious adults in the town. Heavy in allegory, many of the characters and events parallel those found in historical Christian literature. In one scene, a child is mocked and beaten into denying he had seen Jesus. After the boy's third denial, a train whistle is heard (representing Peter’s denial in Luke 22).

The strains of 'We three kings' can be discerned in the score as Kathy, her brother and sister march with the food 'gifts' they have acquired for the man in the 'stable'. They are spotted and followed by a group of country children (shepherds). The early core of children who are in on the secret number a dozen and are specifically called The Disciples in the cast list.

The secret comes out at the end of a children's party/Last Supper. When the apprehended Blakey is being frisked by police, his posture, with arms outstretched to his sides, is a clear reference to the Crucifixion.

The film was favourably reviewed upon its original release, including praise from The New York Times. The film was nominated for four BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards:

Best British Actress, Hayley Mills
Best British Film, Bryan Forbes
Best British Screenplay, Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall
Best Film from any Source, Bryan Forbes

The film was popular at the box office. By 1971 it had earned a profit of over £240,000. Bryan Forbes later said it was the most popular and profitable film he ever made.

Joan Crawford - Della (1964), Female on the Beach (1955), Montana Moon (1930), Night Gallery (1959; Pilot)








Joan Crawford in Della (1964) Diane Baker, Paul Burke
men4men airing - Complete/un-cut.

Go to link for full description:

Montana Moon is a 1930 film musical western starring Joan Crawford, Johnny Mack Brown , and Ricardo Cortez. The film focuses on the budding relationship between a city girl and a rural cowboy.

The film introduced the concept of the singing cowboy to the screen.

As opposed to filming in Monument Valley or in California's Sierra Nevadas, director Malcolm St. Clair sent the cast to Montana for location shooting. The change in scenery and remoteness of the location helped create a strong sense of cohesion among the cast and crew, who spent most of their off hours together playing games and rehearsing scenes.

Because of delays in getting the script through the Production Code Administration, the film was completed before any requisite changes were requested to get the film past local censors. By the time St. Clair got the lengthy list of cuts, it was too late to go back to Montana and re-shoot the necessary scenes. For instance, all shots of drinking had to be eliminated since the country was still under Prohibition.

This meant that both scenes from the wedding celebration in which people were shown drinking in the background and scenes in which Joan gets tipsy at her own wedding had to be cut. Unfortunately, those scenes explained Joan's her flirtatious behavior with Jeff, so instead of seeming innocently drunk, the character comes off as promiscuous.

Released March 20th, 1930
Running time: 89 minutes

Two JOAN Crawford gems on one DVD.
