I love this film. It is so multifaceted. The basic premise of this movie: two boys build a magical flying machine out of an old Radio Flyer wagon so that the younger boy, who is abused by his stepfather - the King -, can escape the abuse. In the end, the machine works, and Bobby, the little boy, is able to get away, abandoning his mother, older brother, school, and life in the process. The ending ... read more

Lesser-known versions of well known movies. (11 movies items)

"Try Once Upon a Blue Moon (Canadian film from 1995, I find it lame but it has a similar story-line). Or The Boy who could Fly or Jack the Bear (my fave of the three listed). "

Product Placement in Movies. (17 movies items)

"Well, of course the huge brand name here is the name of the movie: Radio Flyer. I was nine or so when I saw this movie and I loved it so much that, even though I thought wagons were for babies, I suddenly wanted a Radio Flyer wagon. Or one of those bikes "Fisher" has at the beginning. Not to mention, both boys prominently wear black Converse All Star sneakers. I know Converse all-stars were big in the late 60s so it's not that weird, but this is a list of product placement. "

"Aw, can you imagine a cuter pair than little Bobby and Mikey? Sad movie, but their brotherly bond is quite impressive. Mikey even risks a beating for Bobby. That's a true sibling. "

Insane Film Theories (16 movies items)

"The Theory: The brother actually dies at the end. Plausibility: I was actually surprised that this wasn't the accepted interpretation, however, pretty much everyone believes this, and it is quite clear that this is how the ending turned out."

“I love this film. It is so multifaceted.

In the end, the machine works, and Bobby, the little boy, is able to get away, abandoning his mother, older brother, school, and life in the process. The ending with Bobby flying away doesn't make sense. Surely the mother would have fetched him back etc. Then I saw it again and the clue is in the end when 'Mike' (Tom Hanks) finishes telling the story and says to his sons something like...'Now you see what I mean about history being in the mind of the teller? That's the way I choose to remember it.' My reading of the film then changed. Bobby flying away to” read more
