Hue and Cry
Last Saturday morning I watched a rip roaring Ealing comedy from 1947, "Hue and Cry", wherein a gang of street kids (who were expected to make their own entertainment) foil a master crook who sends commands for robberies by cunningly altering a comic strip's wording each week, unknown to writer and printer.
It was a splendidly non health and safety affair, the kids were playing unsupervised in bombed out buildings (without any safety equipment), there were many punch ups, clips round the ears, knives and catapults galore.
Plus they were expected to go out and get jobs, whilst still having time to be kids.
No hi vis jackets were worn by anyone!
All in all a very jolly jape, where today's health and safety rules were completely absent.
