In 1968, Lindsay Anderson filmed IF...., which became a cult film, and is regarded as one of the best British films of all time. David Wood co-starred as one of three rebel schoolboys in a public school. His character, Johnny, along with Mick (Malcolm McDowell) and Wallace (Richard Warwick), led the revolution against authority, which was regarded by many as a metaphor for the social and political situation in the UK. This book contains David's memories of taking part in the film, the personalities involved, the day to day challenges, excitements and fun, and the reception given to the film, including winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes. The memoir also reflects the brilliance of the idiosyncratic director, Lindsay Anderson, and his team.
