John and Julie (1955) is a British comedy film, starring Colin Gibson, Lesley Dudley, Noelle Middleton and Moira Lister, and featuring Peter Sellers and Sid James in early screen roles.


John (Gibson) and Julie (Dudley) are two children from Dorset who are eager to see the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in spite of the fact that their respective parents have no intention of going. When the two are left alone they decide to run off to London to see John's 'Uncle Ben' "because he knows the queen". Along their way, they encounter different quirky and eccentric people who help them achieve their goal and see the Queen's procession.


Frazer Hines who later became known for his portrayal of Jamie McCrimmon in Doctor Who had a minor role.[2]


Filming took place at Beaconsfield Studios. It is interspersed with footage from the day of the coronation.


Halliwell's Film Video & DVD Guide describes the film as "Genial little family comedy full of stock comic characters."[3]
