Good grief!

Forty-two years after its release the film The Railway Children has been criticised for encouraging children to play on railway lines.

I am sitting here shaking my head in disbelief.

But the film clearly states:

"Get off the line, Bobbie!
Get off the line!"

I've never heard of this - maybe it was never released here.

Me neither. Never heard of it. I will go look on Netflix.

Looks like there was a 2000 remake. I presume the 1970 version is the one to see.

It is, katney.

So has Some Like It Hot been criticised for encouraging bootlegging? Has The Wizard of Oz been criticised for encouraging witchcraft?
