The Railway Children screening to mark death of director Lionel Jeffries
- Paul Dale
- 31 March 2010
Fortieth anniversary screenings of this digitally restored print of Lionel Jeffries’ richly iconic 1970 family film starring Dinah Sheridan, Bernard Cribbins and a youthful Jenny Agutter. The film’s great and often (shamefully) overlooked writer, director (and actor) Jeffries died on 10 February this year aged 83 years old, so these screenings are also something of a commemoration of joyful talent. Showing as part of Weans’ World.
Filmhouse, Edinburgh from Fri 2-Thu 8 Apr.
