Daniel (Mark Lester, Oliver!) and Ornshaw (Jack Wild, Oliver! Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves), two mischievous schoolboys attending a south London comprehensive, strike up a trusting friendship despite their vastly different social backgrounds. But when Daniel falls head over heels in love with fellow pupil Melody, Ornshaw resents being neglected. Not only is their friendship compromised, but the dull, grumpy adult world that surrounds them is about to be turned upside down when ten-year-olds Daniel and Melody announce their plans to get married. Brilliantly and poignantly capturing the world of the pre-adolescent, Melody revels in the joys of youthful rebellion. Since its original release in 1971, it has gained an immense, international cult following and become one of British cinemas most cherished films. Not only was it Alan Parker's (The Commitments, Midnight Express) first screenplay, but also David Puttnam's (Chariots Of Fire, The Killing Fields) debut as a feature film producer. Melody features a fantastic, unforgettable soundtrack from The Bee Gees and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young EXTRAS: New Interviews with David Puttnam, Alan Parker, Waris Hussian and Mark Lester and Stills Galleryfrom£10.90 | RRP:
