Dragon (1980)

Director: Lucy McLaren

Tagline: Two girls in an OH&S nightmare

Two young girls walk into a tram depot late at night looking for their dragon that they had left on the tram during the day. Scary trams chase them and they have to hide from the maintenance workers. When they finally find the dragon, the end up being locked in a tram so just end up spending the night and get the same tram home the next day.

Even though the premise is a bit iffy in these days of security concerns, it was a cute story and the two young leads are great in their roles. I liked seeing them finding the kitten and how the older sister turned up with grease all over her face at one point.

I don't know where this film is available, but surely gunzels have a copy of it already or should be told about it.

Rating: 8/10
