Young Ziggy living on the island of Malta with his grandfather and elder sister is the only witness to an assassination (the shooting takes place in a crowded square but only Ziggy sees the killers), of course with Ziggy being prone to melodramatic stories no one believes him… except the killers!
Dating from 1970 Eyewitness is a very entertaining variation on the boy who cried wolf theme with a great cast and some wonderful Mediterranean (Malta) locations. Young Mark Lester (following up his breakthrough in Oliver) is very cute as Ziggy, there are also roles for cuddly Lionel Jeffries as Ziggy’s grandfather and the sexy Susan George as his elder sister. Australian actor Tony Bonner is the love interest of George (going by the character name of Tom Jones no less!) Some great English character actors also appear (Peter Vaughan, Peter Bowles, Jeremy Kemp). The story might be slight but the unusual locations and some nice acting turn Eyewitness into an enjoyable little thriller.
Also known as Sudden Terror.
