Barbara Windsor and Murray Melvin talk about Sparrows Can't Sing
Joan Littlewood was a renowned theatre director but made only one feature film. Sparrows Can’t Sing was released in 1962.
Here two of the film's stars, Barbara Windsor and Murray Melvin, talk about the experience of making it.
Among the subjects they touch on are working with Littlewood, the Kray twins, Stephen Lewis (Blakey from On the Buses, who wrote the play on which the film was based) and Queenie Watts.
