When three children in a rural corner of Lancashire find a fugitive hiding in a barn on their family's farm it begins an even more dramatic series of events. The children, led by the oldest of them, Kathy, aren't aware this stranger is on the run from the police - in fact, they think he's Jesus, and so when he asks them to keep his presence there a secret, they agree without question. But secrets aren't always easy to keep - and soon word has spread among the children of the nearby village of the man in the barn, leaving Kathy desperate to stop any adults finding out as well. This fine British drama is still as powerful now as it was when it was first released back in the early 1960s.

    I didn't like it because its cheesy 'Jesus is coming to get you' this is a line from the film and they could have made it in coluor because they had coluor filming
    at that time oh and the storyline wasn't the best in the world it could have been better 'its just some bloke' (another line of the film) realy?

    I give 5 stars because was fantastic
    I like the part where the murder get his handgun I thought that the murderer will kill everybody but luckily he didn't.
    Was funny when the children said that the murderer was Jesus.
    Was a fantastic fil eve if was of the1961.
