I have a great love for all children and this is a great film for them.  Smile

E’LOLLIPOP (1974)            ASHLEY LAZARUS

Also released as Lollipop and Forever Young, Forever Free, this film (together with Gray Hofmeyr’s Jock of The Bushveld and David Millin’s Shangani Patrol) is one of the three most requested films in the holdings of the SANFVSA. Two orphans (one black, one white) grow up together in a Lesotho orphanage and become brothers, amidst all the pressures of life, not the least of which is the omnipresent spectre of apartheid.

Then, tragedy strikes, changing both their lives and that of those around them forever. Beautiful photography by Arthur Ornitz, A.S.C. and stirring music by Lee Holdridge together with masterful acting by all concerned, especially the two young leads, make this a milestone in South African cinema, although there were deep concerns expressed at the time of the film’s first release that a depiction of racial togetherness might destroy the foundations on which the policy of apartheid was built.   

Released to VHS and DVD for the first time in 2004. With Jose Ferrer, Karen Valentine, Norman Knox, Muntu Ben Louis Ndebele, Ken Gampu and Bess Finney.

Just FYI, the splashpage of the website www.elollipop.co.za asks where the film has been all these years?

The answer is simple: Trevor has been looking after it.  TeddyR

I completely misunderstood the title of this post. In spite of the 1974, I imagined some way to send people lollipops online. The apostrophe makes all the difference.

Sorry for the confusion, Andy.

The 'e' here in South Africa means 'the' and yes, there actually is a lollipop shared in this film, between the two orphans.  Smile

This is a great film, especially for people who have children.

While I have never seen the film, I do remember it playing here in American theaters under the title "Forever Young, Forever Free."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
