Son of a Stranger (Morris, 1957): BFI Southbank, NFT. 6.15pm

This 35mm presentation is part of the 'Projecting the Archive' strand at BFI Southbank. The film will be introduced by Josephine Botting, BFI Curator.

BFI introduction:
The rise of the teen brought perils, as starkly portrayed in this vintage tale of a young tearaway hell-bent on becoming rich. American producers the Danziger brothers were the kings of low-budget film and TV during the 1950s and 60s, making a fortune selling their wares across the pond. This B-movie stars James ‘Cosh Boy’ Kenney as a young delinquent frustrated with his lot and determined to track down his absent father.
