Trivia

The eponymous theme song, sung by Anthony May in the film, was a major hit in parallel English and French versions by Englebert Humperdinck and Mireille Mathieu, respectively. Both of their versions of the song were released in 1968, shortly after the film. See more »

Goofs

Near the end, as the boy and the girl walk out of the trees to the song 'Julie,' the boy is on the left of the girl. As the camera shot changes to a distant one, they emerge having changed sides, without having had time to do so. See more »

A time capsule
22 June 2008 | by projectmogulSee all my reviews

For those interested in this film, I felt it worth mentioning that it is now available via Optimum Classic/Studio Canal (optd1142) on the same release that features Norman Cohen's utterly wonderful 'The London Nobody Knows'. As you might expect, the DVD is lovingly assembled and the print quality of both films is superb.

Juxtaposing both on the same disc carries some editorial weight: Cohen's London is genuinely (and properly) post-apocalyptic, still reeling from the human and economic tragedies of the Second World War, whereas Hickox describes a shimmering fantasy which, for the fortunate few, was not a million miles from the truth.
