And then he meets Sue - shy, dreamy and well-to-do - a fellow pupil at his school, and the two fall deeply in love. Each day they write long, poetic letters, but when Sue's father finds and reads one of the letters he immediately jumps to the wrong conclusion. Written by Anonymous

Should have gone with his dad to watch The Arsenal
7 October 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The first thing to mention is that Andrew Ray was 18 when this film was made and Janet Munro was 24,which makes this film even more silly.Did teenagers ever behave in this way.Maybe sex wasn't talked about so much in that era.It is just straining credulity that the children would behave in such an innocent way and their parents react as if they had been hit by a bomb.Very dated.
