This enchanting film, based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell, is considered a family classic. Hayley Mills, Diane Holgate and Alan Barnes live on their widowed father's farm in the north of England. Their lives are disrupted when they discover a wanted man hiding out in their father's barn. After a confrontation and misunderstanding they come to the conclusion he is Jesus Christ.
Black and white and of the old school but still excellent
- Whistle Down the Wind review by IP
I remember seeing Whistle Down the Wind when I was a teenager. I enjoyed watching it again. Black and white films can be great becuase they create a special atmosphere and this film is great. The acting is exceptional. The story is well told. Hayley Mills dis her best to acquire a Yorkshire accent - a difficult thing to do in those days. The was the actors spoke was the only thing that let the film down and that not very much.
