    The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner is a British coming-of-age film. The screenplay adaptation was written by Alan Sillitoe from Sillitoe's short story of the same name. The film was directed by Tony Richardson, one of the new young directors emerging from Music by: John Addison. Bertrand Russell lived until the age of ninety-eight, and at the end of the six hundred pages of the first volume of Ray Monk’s biography he is only forty-nine. Yet Monk is a pleasantly economical writer and at no point does the story drag or seem unnecessarily drawn out. The length is justified, for Russell [ ].
