I quite agree! 
It's better than I ever even knew.  They say that the world was built for two.  Only worth living if somebody is loving you.  Baby now you do.

Unashamed willy waving I know, but I know Peter Collinson's (director) son who I raced against in Angelsey a few years ago, and he gave me a copy of a book about the film signed by his widowed wife.
He was actually there when it was all being filmed but doesn't remember much about it as he was only a tiny nipper.
His dad drank himself to death apparently.
