Hue and Cry - W. Bro. John Stephens

In what seems a fitting tribute to our dear departed W. Bro. John Stephens, on Wednesday 15th August at12.20pm BBC2 television are screening a film called "Hue and Cry" in which John was invited as a schoolboy along with other pupils from his school to be an extra in a film that starred Alastair Sim, Jack Warner and Harry Fowler. Released in 1947, in what was the first of the Ealing Comedies, the plot involves a gang of street boys foil a master crook who sends commands for robberies by cunningly altering a comic strip's wording each week, unknown to writer and printer. In an amusing scene near to the end of the film, an endless stream of boys can be seen exiting a car and John is the last boy scampering off. (See video clip)
