Tony Scott

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Tony Scott

News of the tragic death of director Tony Scott broke this morning.

As we mourn the passing of a very talented individual we thought you might like to see Tony being directed by his older brother Ridley in Boy And Bicycle, one of Ridley Scott’s first films.

In this atmospheric film Tony stars as a schoolboy playing truant for the day in Hartlepool.



His bike trip takes him from the beach, to a funfair and to a deserted shack, as we listen to his random thoughts (everything from fish shops to women’s hairy legs).

Boy and Bicycle is truly a family affair, as Scott’s father drove the car used for the many tracking shots, while both of his parents make cameo appearances.

Made on an old 16mm spring-wound Bolex camera in 1962, the BFI provided Scott with post-production funding, and the film was finished with a score by John Barry.

You can watch Boy And Bicycle on The Space here.

Rest in peace Mr Scott.
