Did You Know?

Trivia:
Although filmed in England in the summer of 1960 under the title "The Star and The Cross", it was for some reason kept on the shelf and not released in the UK until April 7th, 1963, by which time the title had been changed to "Hand in Hand" and it went out on release on the ABC circuit as the supporting film to the Tony Hancock comedy "The Punch and Judy Man".See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): 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 »

One of my favorites..., 22 May 2001
Author: (brian2001@deepspacenine.com) from Colorado, USA

I saw this film a number of times when before I was 10 years old. It is such a beautiful film in every aspect. The writing, acting, directing is all excellent. I only wish it would be released on video. Many children I believe would benefit from seeing this film as I did. In the end, a person watching this film learns the value of looking at the beauty within each person, regardless of their background.
