The Optimists of Nine Elms - 1974 is a British drama film that takes place in a seedy place in London, called Nine Elms, which borders on the Thames. The location pretty much sets the tone for the movie. The main character is an ex-vaudevillian/musician who is shabby but at the same time has an unconscious dignity about him. He befriends two street urchins from broken homes who he sees are frustrated, bored, and lack affection. He realizes he once again has a purpose in life - that of encouraging these two children. He amuses them with the way he is dressed, tells them of his performer friends and shares tidbits of his own life. Also, he has a dog, Bella, who befriends the kids and they in turn befriend Bella big time.
