Did You Know?

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 »

childhood's innocence
23 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like many others I first saw this film on "The Children's Film Festival" on a Saturday afternoon. I must have been 6 or 7 and I loved it! Many years later a friend of mine was humming a tune that I regocnized as the charming melody from the film. "Do you remember that movie?" I asked. "Oh yes." He replied "Hand In Hand" We both smiled. He had grown up in a very small town next to mine and gone to different schools, but it was touching that we were both sitting in front of our television sets on the same Saturday afternoon watching this lovely film. I was actually able to tape it back in 1988 off of Showtime, I just watched it again last night and it still moves me. Loretta Parry and Phillip needs were so good! I brought so many memories! Good ones.
