When I was little I saw this movie on tv. It made an impact that never left me. It is a "B" movie, but the message of cruelty to those that are different is an "A". I don't know if it would have had the same impact on me had I been an adult when I first saw it, but the message is still with me today. Sometimes I wish young kids today could see this movie, I wonder if it might make an impact on them also.
