Melody originally released in the UK in 1971 as S.W.A.L.K. (Sealed With A Loving Kiss). The film, directed by Waris Hussein from a screenplay by Alan Parker, reunited the stars of Oliver!, Mark Lester and Jack Wild.
In this tale of childhood puppy love we find young Daniel Latimer (Lester) falling in love with and attempting to marry Melody Perkins (Tracy Hyde). Daniel makes friends with the school troublemaker, Ornshaw (Wild), who helps the young couple in their endeavor. The film was shot in various locations around London.
Below we have the 1970 theatrical trailer, and as an extra treat, a 70s-era “Making of” piece.
