Trivia

Nello Daas aspires to be an artist, like his idol, Peter Paul Rubens, whose painting he "visits" for inspiration in Antwerp Cathedral. The painting Nello sees in the film is Rubens' triptych, "The Descent from the Cross" (1612-1614). Other Rubens paintings in Antwerp Cathedral include "The Elevation (Raising) of the Cross" (1610-1611), also a triptych; and "The Assumption of the Virgin Mary" (1626), the Cathedral's altarpiece.

Quotes

Nello Daas: [Nello and his grandfather encounter a man on the road who has beaten his dog and left him for dead; after the man leaves, Nello listens to the dog's breathing] I think he's only a little dead.

Unimaginative Version of Weepy Story
25 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Unimaginative filming of an already sentiment-steeped story. The actors are poorly directed indeed--they use exaggerated, cliched expressions and gestures that would have been out of place in the worst silent melodrama--and the production values are strictly Poverty Row (tho this film was in fact made by a major studio, RKO). The 1959 version with David Ladd is the version of choice.
