Trivia

Louis W. Kellman had initially tried but failed to raise funds and produce this low budget film in spite of his prior success with the low budget The Burglar (1957). Kellman's local studio did however supply production services such as equipment and supplemental crew but he received no screen credit. See more »

apparently greatly under-rated
24 April 2002 | by (austin, tx) – See all my reviews

how could this film only rate a 6.9 on imdb? this film is incredibly poignant and well done, from the fantastic story to the wonderful performances to the gorgeous black and white cinematography. there just aren't that many films out there that are this good. maybe the subject material of teenage mental illness is just too difficult for some or some people today can't relate to the characters who seem very different from today's teenagers. it is a rare thing to experience a movie that evokes such deep feelings from its audience. Frank and Eleanor Perry, this film's director and writer (and husband and wife team) had a penchant for disturbing, emotional conflicts. this film started their careers and was Oscar-nominated for both its direction and its screenplay. in our own way we are like these lost children, finding our way to the best start we can make in life.
