Having said on the earlier thread that my grandson and I had enjoyed it in the cinema as an adventure film for children, I watched it with him again on DVD at Christmas.

He enjoyed it again, but with the SA dodecateuch looking down on me from the bookshelf with half-a-dozen other AR related volumes, I found it a pretty miserable experience, especially the treatment of the Blacketts.

The scenes left out of the final cut mostly deserved to be, in particular ones with CF holding forth about German rearmament, but the one of the two mothers together was not without merit, although of course it is not in the book.
