Ah! Melody

I remember seeing this film years ago. I think I was off school sick, and in my weakened state I found it very touching. 'Melody' from 1971, reuniting Jack Wild and Mark Lester, the Artful Dodger and Oliver respectively from the hit musical, and Tracey Hyde as the eponymous heroine, together with a host of familiar faces in the supporting cast, and portraying a London and a childhood that produces an almost suffocating nostalgia in me. A bit silly, but an oft-overlooked gem.

And there I was thinking that eponymous was only used in the music business. The dictionary will be rewritten!

If it makes you feel better, I did originally learn it from Melody Maker many years ago.
