Hand in Hand on DVD




Hand in Hand (1960)


Director: Philip Leacock

Starring: John Gregson, Sybil Thorndike, Finlay Currie, Loretta Parry, Philip Needs, Miriam Karlin, Derek Sydney

This profoundly moving, highly acclaimed film recounts a universal story of friendship between two children, and the testing of that friendship by religious differences and entrenched prejudice. With captivating performances from its two young leads, the multi-award winning drama is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements.

Life is a great adventure for best friends Rachel and Michael, who are too young to know that Rachel, being Jewish, and Michael, being Catholic, are on opposite sides of a wall of intolerance. They become ‘blood brothers’, and decide to celebrate by making a trip to London to see the Queen. It’s just the start of their adventures…

The film won several awards including a special Golden Globe Award for Best Film Promoting International Understanding and the children’s category at the Venice Film Festival.
