Child's Play is a 1954 British film, which was made in 1952.


It is a science-fiction film about children who manage to split the atom and thereby create a new form of popcorn.[1] Directed by Margaret Thomson, it was based on a script by Don Sharp, who also worked on the film as an assistant.[2][3]



Don Sharp had been in hospital for nearly two years with tuberculosis. When he came out, executives at Group 3 invited him to see if he had any ideas for a film and he pitched them Child's Play. He said Group 3's practice was to team an experienced producer with an inexperienced director so Herbert Mason was teamed with Margaret Thomson. Sharp called it "a good little picture" and he would work with Group Three on several more occasions.[4]
