Trivia

The meaning and relevance of this film's title 'The Hiding Place' is twofold. Its literary origins are derived from the Bible's Psalm 119 : 114 / Book of Isaiah which says: "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word . . . Hold thou me up, and I . . . ". The film and source book's title also literally refers to the Dutch home of the Ten Boom family in Haarlem, Holland which was a safe haven that Jews could hide in during the Nazis invasion of the Netherlands during World War II.

Beautiful story of true love and forgiveness.
24 November 1999 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie again on cable over the weekend, 25 years after I first saw it in 1975. It was certainly interesting to view it at such drastically different points in my life. This is the powerful story of the family of Corrie Ten Boom, who died at age 91 in 1983. She and her family (Dutch watchmakers) hid Jews from the Nazis in an attic room over their home/shop during WWII. They were eventually caught and sent to Ravensbruck. But the story of who lives and who doesn't is overshadowed by the powerful lessons of love (both God's love for man and man's love for other men), and by the importance and power of forgiveness. It paints a stiking picture of Christ's concept of turning the other cheek. Julie Harris is great as Corrie sister Betsie, and I can't believe that Jeanette Clift (Corrie) never made another movie. She brought the character to life beautifully. Also stars legendary character actors Arthur O'Connell (his last film) and Eileen Heckart. Corrie Ten Boom herself makes an appearance at the end of the film. Made by World Wide Films (Billy Graham's film production company) with a haunting score by Tedd Smith.
