The Little Ones was a 1965 British family comedy film directed by British director Jim O'Connolly starring Carl Gonzales and Kim Smith. Dudley Foster stars as Superintendent Carter and Derek Newark plays the strict Detective Sgt. Wilson.

Child actor Kim Smith was hired to play the part of the abused child Ted making his screen debut. He went on to star in Oliver in 1968 and in 2004 and 2005 made appearances in The Bill and EastEnders.


Two poor boys from London, an abused child and the son of a whore attempt to stowaway on a ship bound to Jamaica to escape their lives of misery and squalor. It is on the exotic island that one of the boys' fathers is believed to be currently inhabiting. They manage to get aboard by stealing a suitcase from a Rolls Royce belonging to a wealthy shipping businessman but are caught and subsequently scolded and sent home. Later an elderly fellow tells that there are many ships leaving.
