Three films about teens and tearaways. Starring Robin Askwith, Terence Morgan and Gary Kemp, and directed by such celebrated filmmakers as Lewis Gilbert (The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker)

Johnny on the Run is a superb early work by illustrious British director Lewis Gilbert (The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker) which follows a orphaned Polish refugee who runs into trouble in the shape of two scheming thieves. Starring popular character actor Sydney Tafler (Carve Her Name with Pride, The Spy Who Loved Me) and John Laurie (The 39 Steps, Dad’s Army).

Hide & Seek stars a teenage Gary Kemp (The Krays) as do-gooder Chris, who becomes entangled with a borstal escapee known locally as the Deptford Dodger. Starring Roy Dotrice (Clochemerle, Game of Thrones) and Robin Askwith (Britannia Hospital, the Confessions series) in supporting roles, this is amongst the best of the CFF’s 1970s output.

Terry on the Fence was British film industry stalwart Frank Godwin’s (producer, Woman in a Dressing Gown) last ever film. When 11-year-old Terry runs away from home he only intends to put the wind up his parents. But a gang of older bullies, led by the tough Les, soon draw him into their daunting criminal world of break-ins and stolen goods.
