Framegrabs of “Trompie”

Trompie South African Cinema 1975 RetroAfrika Bioscope

Here are some delightful framegrabs from our 1975 restored Afrikaans film “Trompie

+ The original 1975 feature film is about the young Trompie and the misadventures he and his gang of friends embark upon, based on the books by Topsy Smith. Together with his mates Rooie, Blikkies and little Dawie, the young boys embark on a series of naughty things that often land them in hot soup with the townsfolk of their hometown of Kwaggaberg

+ Trompie is a freckle-faced eleven-year-old boy and the “Big Chief” of the “Boksom Gang”

+ Their cajoling with the Reverend’s pet baboon gets completely out of hand and Trompie’s innocent attempts at fixing his sister, Anna, up with a boyfriend goes terribly wrong

+ Not only does Trompie and his gang of friends almost ruin the annual school concert, but their shenanigans leads to a bet that Trompie will be able to crash the show and appear on stage that evening

+ Throughout all these misadventures, Trompie befriends a playful mongrel who belongs to an old man about to leave the town

+ As the story comes to a close, Trompie will have to watch on as the mangy dog has to choose between staying with the impish young boy and leaving with its old master
