Goofs

Father Timothy wouldn't have needed to ask Michael if Rachel was a friend of his, since he had already met them together on at least one previous occasion, when they were on their way to buy a newspaper. So conceivably he would have already known who Michael was referring to. See more »

Hand In Hand Should be on VHS or DVD
19 August 2005 | by (Dallas,Texas) – See all my reviews

Hand in Hand shows that friendship can surpass any other barrier. It also shows how a child feels when he discovers that people are different. This is an excellent movie which should be put on either VHS or DVD This is a movie that helps both children and older people understand differences between people of different backgrounds. Michael wants to be Rachels friend and then he discovers how different their backgrounds are and feels that his friendship with Rachel is threatened because of that fact. I saw this movie when it first came out in 1961 and saw it again when it was shown on the Children's Film Festival in 1967 and again in 1968 and 1972. I have not seen it since but I can recall the scenes and the duologue as if I had gone seen the movie yesterday.I would not hesitate to recommend this movie to anyone
