The effect of this movie on me in 1961
10 July 2011 | by jeffscanlan49See all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1961 on ABC TV in Australia. I was 11 years old and lived with my parent on a farm west of Brisbane. It was in black and white and because we generated our own electricity from the wind back then we were lucky to see the movie through to the end. No wind meant low battery levels and the screen kept shrinking in at the sides.

However I was old enough to get the message. One of the local farmers had divorced a few years prior to that and was left with his somewhat socially immature daughter who was often bullied.

I saw what happened to her and after viewing the movie swore that that was never going to happen to me.

I married, had a daughter but alas....that is just what did happen to me!
