Text version of this film





This 1980s update of the Green Cross Code uses vibrantly coloured film, and a variation on the Grandmaster Flash track ‘The Message’, which tells us: "John was a fool who didn't act cool. He walked on out, he broke every rule. He should have checked it out, he should have used his head, if he don't watch out he's gonna wind up dead."
