    Lovely film about a boy with an overactive imagination who improves the lives of the people around him: spoiler it's not the unicorn who grants the wishes, it's the boy's influence. Beautiful stuff, just erratic. Not Carol Reed's finest, but a fascinating precursor to his masterpiece: Oliver!

    an old fashioned heart warming film set in london about poverty, a unicorn and a wrestling match that could improve the fortune of the characters. celia johnson does a good job acting as a distressed wife waiting for her husband to return from south africa. even the child actor in this one, who plays her son keeps you watching by saying various innocent, imaginative thoughts out loud and doing childlike things as chasing animals around fervently. diana dors walks around and looks pretty, but the best acting in this comes from david kossoff whom plays kandinsky the old russian man who always has something to say about life and looks after the people around him with great warmth
