Midnight is a Place

ORPHANED TYKE Lucas Bell (posh, of course) is watched over by bombastic guardian Sir Randolph Oakapple. Man decides to give boy a lesson in class politics by dint of a trip to his mill – the Midnight Mill, naturally – where he forces the sprog to work. There Lucas meets Anne-Marie, a French girl. Pair have to fend for themselves when dopey Oakapple burns himself to death. Spend a while collecting cigarette butts from the street. Meanwhile another kid gets stamped to death by an industrial carpet press. Packaged as children’s entertainment, believe it or not, but little fun to be found.
