María del Carmen Jiménez,
At the age of 9, Tommy Woodry has a reputation for telling tall tales -- the latest one being that his family is moving from Manhattan to a ranch out west. When the landlord interrupts the Woodrys at dinner to show their about to be vacated apartment, the Woodrys tell Tommy enough is enough. Then that hot summer night Tommy decides to sleep on the fire escape -- outside the Kellerson's apartment, since it is a story higher and gets more breeze. Tommy sees the Kellersons kill a man. Tommy's parents and the police won't believe his story. But the Kellersons want to silence him. Written by

This peril-thrilled adventure in suspense...the terrifically taut story of a boy of too much imagination who was the only witness to a murder...alone against the killers because nobody believed his story! See more »

[shakes his head]
What are you runnin' around tellin' stories for?

No? Well, maybe if you tell me what they are, I can explain. I don't want you thinkin' these terrible things. What is it you think I did?
You know what you did!
But I don't. I don't know what you're talkin' about. Now, c'mon, Tommy, let's be fair. You can't accuse me of something and not tell me ...

I first saw this film when I was ten. The same age as the terrified young star "Tommy" of the film. I sat on the edge of my seat, glued to the screen as every second of suspense ticked away. A masterpiece to rival even the best of the great Hitchcock Thrillers! I have never seen it released on video, but would be the first to run out and buy it. If it turns up on AMC, DON'T MISS IT!
