Made in 1947, it was the first "Ealing Comedy" with a sterling cast including Alistair Sim, Jack Warner and Harry Fowler.
Loads of "Boy's Own Paper" type of good-hearted fun, and showing London before the wartime bombing damage had been cleared.
Perhaps the film's greatest asset, however, is the way in which director Charles Crichton uses the locations of war-torn London to tell his story. The Blood and Thunder boys have their hideout in a bombed-out building, full of secret corners and ruined beams for them to play in. As they pursue Rhona along the London streets, we understand how shabby the city looked at the time of filming, with very few commodities for sale in the shops. The city was also highly socially stratified, with stark contrasts between the poky terraced houses where Joe's family live and the expansively appointed detached houses in the suburbs (most of which received comparatively little damage during the Blitz). On the other hand London was much quieter at that time; very few cars adorned the streets, and horse-drawn carts were still very much in evidence, used mostly by tradespeople.
Despite its basic good humor, HUE AND CRY offers a radical vision for post-war Britain. It suggests that the old social order, where children should be seen and not heard, has collapsed; anyone can now achieve their aims, so long as they are prepared to fight for them. Director Crichton also suggests that postwar London is also a center of petty crime; a combination of stringent rationing and lack of availability of fancy goods provided a rich hunting-ground for black marketeers such as Nightingale. Yet perhaps people had a right to expect something more - after all, they had just spend six long years fighting for their freedom. Crichton offers the possibility of a solution by showing the children triumphing - perhaps youth will help to usher in a brave new world of prosperity.
The TRUMP ~ a newspaper fiction~ crime drama (THINK Comic book type) series fills in the lives of the bored street gangs who play and hang out the BOMBED out buildings in post war London~ (1947)~Young Bob has a vivid imagination and is drawn to the story when he spots the SAME license plate on a VAN in the current edition of TRUMP~ the wooden boxes in the Trump have "bodies in it" so Bob imagines the real life ones do too. They have fur coats.~ when the GANG try to understand that the why the fiction novel is nearly true to life~ they go the source~ crime author novelist~ LOL....Alistair Sims who spends his days using a Dictaphone and recording his "crime novels" ~The gang weasel plot details~from him and realize someone has CHANGED some details to fit robberies and the "The Trump" / notifies the HOODS "details of how to commit upcoming robberies".... Sims is only on the screen for 10 minutes THE BEST of the whole movie~ LOL.....The Boys complete with token girl.... tip off the cops to crimes but someone is sending them false info. This is cute little movie. Funny ~ keeps your attention. The final chase is fun. I give this one 4 STARS~ Ealing studios~ of course~ Alistair Sims, Jack Warner, and Valarie White star.
