Made in the hopeful post-World War II era that produced such classics of social conscience as Gentlemens Agreement, Pinky and Home of the Brave, this provocative film is a fable for its time and ours. It tells the supernatural-tinged story of an orphanwho finds a safe haven in small-town Americauntil 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 OBrien, Dean Stockwell), a popular theme song (Nature Boy) and the feature-film debut of director Joseph Losey (The Servant, The Go-Between). **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
