"Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not" along with "Don't let the bastards grind you down" and "I'm out for a good time-all the rest is propaganda" in the first 10 minutes of Alan Sillitoe's autobiographical novel, film adaptation.

Filmed in 1960 in and around Nottinghams cobbled streets, pubs, terrace houses and factories. The lead role Arthur Seaton played by recently passed Albery Finney is the ultimate anti-authority since well ever really certainly the bench mark. Spends his days at the factory bench and his evenings in the pub with.

Superb jazz score by Johnny Dankworth the film stands as a vibrant modern classic. The film was a huge commercial success and won 3 Baftas including best British film.åÊ This is the seminal film of the British "kitchen sink" drama the crux of the film is Arthur Seaton being forced to rid his devil-may-care attitude..........."don't let the bastards grind you down"
