The Boy with Green Hair

Type: New Blu-Ray


Made in the hopeful post-World War II era that produced such classics of social conscience as The Search and Intruder in the Dust, this provocative film is a fable for it's time - and ours. It tells the supernatural-tinged story of an orphan who finds a safe haven in small-town America until the day his hair turns green. Then the townfolk turn against him, frightened by the change they cannot understand. A call for tolerance, an inspiring statement that different doesn't mean threatening, The Boy with Green Hair boasts a fine cast (Robert Ryan, Pat O'Brien, Dean Stockwell), a popular theme song (Nature Boy) and the feature-film debut of director Joseph Losey (The Servant, The Go-Between).
