Hmmm. I always find the boy-played-by-a-girl scenario that seems curiously mandatory for this story to be creepy in the extreme - even as a kid. I'll take "The Naked Kiss" over this one for Betty's contribution to my library.

A few years ago I happened to catch some clips of this film on a cable channel that was called "The Arts" or something -- it featured short 3-5 minute snippets of various films, orchestra performances, etc. I was shocked at how beautiful the quality of the film was, and for a moment was certain it was a modern remake of the original. Thus far I haven't seen the whole film, of course. Too many films, not enough time.
