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 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.

The Hiding Place is a story of a Christian family that risks life and liberty to help Jews who are becoming increasingly oppressed.
This is movie-making as an art form. The directing, camera work, and script are superb. But in the end the enduring quality of this movie is brought out by the performances. Julie Harris is a legend and puts on a clinic in this picture. Newcomer Ms. Clift never did anything before or since but she did this film with great heart and dignity. Eileen Heckert and Arthur O'Connell are superb. In short, the performances are outstanding. It is film making at its best. This is a moving and important film. Don't miss it.
