Like David Wakeling (see other review) I have been searching for this film for years. I did not know what it was called but after mentioning the story line on an ABC Minors site (saturday morning pictures) someone said he thought it was called "Hand In Hand" - even the title gave me goosebumps and I knew that was the one. Only surprise and dissapointment I had was that the film, although British was only released in the USA on region 1 dvd but at least it was available and i have now ordered it.

I see it was only released in 2010, but anyway I remember when i was a kid how much i loved this film and that era of memories it brought back to me from the early 60s. The days of the ABC Minors and the wonderful Saturday morning pictures bwhich were the highlights of your week. Hand In Hand was one of the main films at one of these shows and when it beacme a main feature of the week I must have seen the film 8 times in one week ha.

Anyway, great film of childhood innosense, get it, you will not be dissapointed.

It seems that Associated British weren’t sure what to do with “Hand in Hand” after it had been filmed as “The Star and The Cross” in 1960, because, although it was a children’s film and had been beautifully directed by Philip Leacock, who had given us “The Kidnappers” and “The Spanish Gardener”, it wasn’t exactly your usual kids picture, being, as it was, about religious intolerance between those of the Catholic and Jewish faiths. So, although it was trade shown as “Hand in Hand” in London in October, 1960, it remained unreleased and they left it on the shelf for three years before eventually slipping it out on an ABC circuit release as the support to the Tony Hancock comedy “The Punch and Judy Man” and, after that initial release, it seems to have sunk without trace...although I did show it as a children’s Saturday matinee film at the Plaza, Fenton, in September, 1969 and the young audience adored it. That was the last time I saw it until Network released a beautifully restored version of it on DVD last year.

Two seven and a half years old children, Rachel and Michael (beautifully played by nine year olds Loretta Parry and Philip Needs), fall in love at school and become inseparable. Their relationship is frowned upon by their respective families because Rachel is Jewish and Michael is a Roman Catholic. Worried by this, Rachel and Michael decide that the best thing to do to see if God approves of their friendship is to visit each other’s places of worship during the respective services and, if God strikes them dead, they’ll know that he didn’t approve. So Michael, feeling and looking like a fish out of water, goes to the synagogue to observe what to him is a very strange service indeed and Rachel does likewise at Michael’s church.

A sensitive British film, not overdone. As I do not live in region 1 I must rely on my memory. I would love to know why it is only available for americans. A very sweet film.

I have been searching for this wonderful gem of a BRITISH film for several years as I could not remember the title or any of the cast! It is a gentle reminder, though a strong story, of a time when kids were safe and could play and explore to their hearts content without the threat of abduction, abuse or adult intervention. The moral and religious questions add interest and show that childhood innocence and enquiry can go hand in hand. I am delighted with this discovery and, although it is region one, urge more people to buy it to see what childhood should be about.
