Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - 03/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "Joseph Losey's first movie. Dean Stockwell stars as the war orphan shunned by everyone in his small town..."
Sight and Sound - 04/01/2011
"[I]t proves a surprisingly tough little scrapper in practice....It's almost as though Losey was pre-emptively preparing his defense for the McCarthy hearings in celluloid form..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Made in the hopeful post-World War II era that produced such classics of social conscience as Gentlemen's 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 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).

Product Description:

Peter Frye, a war orphan whose parents have been killed in an air raid, wakes up one morning to find his hair has turned green. He meets with bitter prejudice and hatred from his fellow citizens, yet continues to express a belief that came to him in a vision: all wars must stop. An interesting parable and social commentary, with another fine performance by Stockwell as the alienated youth.
