Peter Frye, typical American boy, is orphaned when his parents are caught in the London Blitz. He is not told of their fate, but shuttled from one selfish relative to the next, ending with "Gramp," a kindly ex-vaudevillean. Peter and Gramp, both fond of "Irish bulls," get along fine; but the morning after Peter finally learns he's an orphan, his hair spontaneously turns green! The absurd over-reactions of stupid people overturn his life as the story becomes a parable. Written by

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.
