Now this one stars a certain Gordon Jackson & Kenneth Griffith (years before Minder's 'A Tethered Goat'). It also stars Daphne Anderson, the drunken passenger Katie from 'Come in T-64, Your Time Is Ticking Away'.
The description from the BFI's site states:
A boy tells his parents that a bus conductor turned him off the bus home for not having a ticket. The story gets out of control and the conductor, a war veteran with memory problems, is harassed until he collapses on the railway tracks and and is killed by a train.
No wonder Dennis ended up in The Sweeney after eating at the same table as George Cowley!
A real shame this film is unavailable at present.
I was thinking that maybe if George Cowley spent more time with young Terry is life may have turned out quite different.
The movie seems like it might have potential. As mentioned previously the topic of mental health wasn't used much at that time in movies especially in relation to war veterns. It has Gordon Jackson and Kenneth Griffith in it and we know what fine actors they were.
