I must say that I have watched this film probably twenty times, and for those handful of people who have even heard of this movie - I have a feeling you think that that is excessive. I own two copies of the film, one reprint from 1992 which can be found in the 9.99 section at any Suncoast, and the other an original miraculously found in a bargain bin at a small Wal-Mart. I have had many profound thoughts about this movie and why I am so attracted to an obviously bad movie. The answer: Sammy Snyders' eyes. No actor can say so much with once glance like Sammy. When Sandy doesn't allow Sammy to pick up the knife Sammy's eyes say - I am 12, I am a little pervert, I am crazy. And no actor can mask the subtle signs of autism like Sammy can. The cover claims Sammy has autism, however, it is never brought up in the movie. It is a stain that Sammy covers well. And even you can't admit you didn't laugh when Sammy wheels Mrs. Oliphant's wheelchair through the meadow. What a rollicking time that was! God bless Sammy Snyders, it is a shame that Hollywood and fame consumed him.
