Can Someone Help Me?



I watched this as a child on the late movie show, back in the 60's.

I have only seen it that one time, and I am still confused as to why
his hair turned green (my favorite color)!

Although I did not fully understand the movie in it's totality; I enjoyed
Dean Stockwell's performance.

It might be a spoiler for some of our posters; but I need someone who
would be kind enough to fill me in on why his hair turned green, the
conflict within the story, etc.

I will try to find a copy of this movie and watch it again.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!

Although I saw the movie I can't recall the reason either, but it was released on DVD-R by Warner Archives last week. Details can be found at wbshop.com if you like it enough to buy a copy.

His hair turned green because it was a symbol that war is very bad for children. It is explained when he is in the woods with the rest of the war orphans.

Blue's my favorite color, but pink and purple is my favorite color combination.

Sort of reminds you of Little Kiddles, doesn't it!

His hair turned green to make him stand out, rather than be just another invisible war orphan forgotten by society, so that he was marked with the task of telling the world about the evils of war.
