Saw this when I was 12 despite being adult rated cinema
23 October 2018 | by paulatepc66See all my reviews

As was often the case in the 60s children were allowed to see such films and this had a profound effect on me. Even now I cry at man's inhumanity and doubt God's existance to allow such things.

I fear lessons have not been learned.
