William in never never land
18 August 2019 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Made at a time when films a d tv aimed at children wdfe becoming more popular.This film is set in an England that didn't exist.Obviously set post war none of the characters were affected by the truly miserable austerity period.Everything was rationed,even bread.The young actor playing William seems a bit out of place with his north east accent.Really not worth watching.
