I'm fond of the 1974 Swallows and Amazons film as well, though I'm not keen on the casting of Nancy and Uncle Jim. The girl who plays Titty in that film is superb - she conveys wonder, innocence and imagination very naturally.

Oh yes, the 1970's Railway Children film was absolutely brilliant & tried to follow the original story! I'm still In contact with Sally Thomsett, who appeared in the film. She's absolutely lovely! :D

I'm a big, big fan of E Nesbit and have ready many of her books - but i must admit the film of The Railway Children is every bit as good as the book - and probably more effective in some ways. 8)

hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

I was in contact with her as well. However, I have had to cool it off as she was getting a little too "lovey" with me...

Surely we aren't going to see Sally Thomsett up for 'sexual harassment' next are we?! :shock:
