5.0 out of 5 stars Blessed!, 29 Jun 2002
This review is from: Whistle Down The Wind [VHS] (VHS Tape)
What an absolutely lovely movie. Three children, two sisters and their brother, who live in a farm, discover a man one day hiding in their barn. They ask who he is, and the man, shocked, utters the exclamation, "Jesus Christ". From then on, the children think the man is Jesus.
The film follows a charming course, which will warm your heart, and at moment, break your heart too. Whistle Down The Wind is a portrait of platonic love between strangers, and the absolute trust children are willing to give adults who, they believe, deserve it.
Not a film to be missed - perfect for watching on a grey, rainy afternoon when there is nothing else to do...and simply poignant.

Whistle Down the Wind [DVD]I remember watching this at the pictures as a lad and enjoying it. One actor who is still working, apart from Hayley Mills, of course, is Roy Holder, who played Jackie. As television director Don Taylor recalls in his book Days of Vision, he had only recently been discovered at a school in Aston, Birmingham, and was first cast to play a Brummie kid in a television play opposite the great actor Robert Shaw. This was in the days when plays went out live (I remember once hearing a prompt) and it was obvious at rehearsal that Shaw hadn't learned his lines properly, which threw Roy. Taylor told Roy sternly that he should carry on acting and never stop for minor fluffs. Shaw added, "Supposing I do that on transmission? I just might, you know." The greenhorn kid replied to the great actor, "Oh well if it's on transmission, I'll cover up for yer, but this is rehearsal, and in rehearsal yer got to get it roight!" That put Shaw in his place.
