Hi everyone,

I haven't posted for a very long time because I've had nothing to say of interest, plus being 16000 odd kilometres away in Australia. However, I do look through the forum at least once a week.

I have been looking for many, many years for a 1960's movie, where quite a few scenes were shot in Brentford. I had been told it may be a movie called "The Concrete Jungle" starring Stanley Baker,  but I hunted that down and didn't find what I was looking for.

Last night I goggled "Brentford 1960's" and up came a site called "reelstreets". This brought up a lot of stills from a movie called "The Challenge" and lo and behold I had found what I was looking for. It came out in America as "It takes a thief"so I then went on You Tube to see if it was there. Type it in as "It takes a thief" and you are able to watch the whole movie.

At the 23 minute mark is the scene I had been looking for, as it shows kids running out of school at the end of the day. This is in fact myself and other kids running out of St Paul's gate and continue running towards the Rec. Unfortunately, it is a short scene, and we run pretty fast, that I can't really 100% say which one I am.

My best shot is that I maybe the girl towards the end who seems to almost take a tumble, as her arm comes up in order to keep her balance. The reason I am sharing this with you is that you may be one of the other kids, or much to my dismay, you may lay claim to being that little girl. Anyhow, tell me what you think of the whole thing as there are more scenes from the streets of Brentford i.e. New Rd, Brook Rd North and a few others. In fact you may end up seeing your own house on there.
