He is not told of their fate, but shuttled from one selfish relative to the next, ending with "Gramp," a kindly ex-vaudevillean. Peter and Gramp, both fond of "Irish bulls," get along fine; but the morning after Peter finally learns he's an orphan, his hair spontaneously turns green! The absurd over-reactions of stupid people overturn his life as the story becomes a parable. Written by Rod Crawford <[email protected]>

townspeople, comes back green. Pat O'Brien, underplaying more than was

Robert Ryan, forsaking his usual villainous roles, is the child
who helps Stockwell make sense of it all. And those who know Barbara hale
primarily as either "Della Street" on the "Perry Mason" shows, the "Amana"
lady, or William Katt's real-life mother, gives a brief but believable
performance as Stockwell's sympathetic teacher.
Joseph Losey was the far-sighted director who brought all this to the
