13-year-old Hayley Mills made her debut in this marvellous drama that tackles an adult-child friendship with sensitivity and insight. Mills plays Gillie, a lonely girl who witnesses a crime committed by Polish sailor Horst Buchholz. He kidnaps her to keep her quiet until he can leave the country, and the pair begin to bond. Child characters can often be unnaturally grown-up or too babyish, but this is a brilliantly drawn portrait and Mills gives a suitably naturalistic performance that stands up well over time.
