Peter Frye, typical American boy, is orphaned when his parents are caught in the London Blitz. 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

It's been years since I last saw this film, but it stays with me. I was an adolescent in the early 60's when I first saw The Boy With Green Hair on a local television station in southern California. It was one of those stations that has a playlist of movies which they repeat at intervals. I must have watched this film a dozen or more times, and each time I so completely identified with the character played by Dean Stockwell (even though I was a girl and had very brown hair). I'm sure it had something to do with my age, the times I was living in, and the fact that I was a bit different from the "popular" kids. I have looked for a video copy of this movie for years and finally discovered that the producer/owner of the movie pulled all rights for reproducing it because of some dispute, I can't remember now what it was about. At any rate, it is a real shame. I would certainly like to share this treasure with some young friends of mine. I think its message would come through, despite the years.
