Melody Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

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 Gallery [show more]

Waris Hussein directs this British drama starring Mark Lester and Tracy Hyde. After falling in love with his classmate Melody (Hyde), ten-year-old schoolboy Daniel (Lester) announces his intention to marry her as soon as possible. His plans are met with opposition from his parents and his best friend Ornshaw (Jack Wild), who is jealous of the attention Daniel has been giving Melody. However, ignoring the protests of those around him, Daniel carries on undeterred and begins recruiting his classmates to help him organise a secret ceremony in one of his hideouts well away from the eyes of the disapproving adults.
