  • Description

    The BFI presents three more classic kids' films from the much loved Children’s Film Foundation. Cult favourite Sammy's Super T-Shirt (1978) - arguably the most sought after gem in the CFF library – finally comes to DVD, accompanied by two other classics from the collection.

    Sammy dreams of becoming a super athlete, despite his puny build. When his lucky training t-shirt is thrown into a scientist's lab it becomes imbued with 'super strength' power. When Sammy manages to recover the t-shirt he uses his new-found strength to out-run baddies and bullies alike.

    Soapbox Derby (1957), sees a young Michael Crawford scrapping with a rival South London gang in Battersea, while The Sky-Bike (1967) stars Liam Redmond as an eccentric inventor trying to achieve more than just speed.

    Special Features:

    • Sammy Super T-shirt has a huge cult following and ‘retro’ appeal – existing  internet following has generated an online petition for its release with 850+ signatories; 200+ comments and 50K views for clips posted on YouTube
    • Soapbox Derby stars Michael Crawford – one of Britain best loved actors
    • Three classic films, all fully remastered from original film elements, on a single disc – great value release
    • Illustrated sleeve by renowned film poster artist Graham Humphries

    Cast & Crew:  

    Starring Michael Crawford (Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em, Phantom of the Opera), Lawrie Mark (The Fosters).

    Directed by Charles Frend (The Cruel Sea, The Long  Arm), Jeremy Summers (The Punch & Judy Man, Crooks in Cloisters).
