    Hi.



    I remember this film with fondness, but unfortunatley not the title.



    A bunch of children come across an on-the-run criminal, on some farm land, but mistake his as Jesus.



    Any ideas? Thanks.

    While producing this movie, Richard Attenborough met a young kid (ALAN BARNES) who was appearing in the film. He saw the obligatory line of canvas chairs on set and looking at the one for ALAN BATES, with his name stencilled on the back, said to Richard Attenborough, "You've spelt my name wrong." "Oh...oh yes." replied Atteborough. The next day, he came to the set and at the end of the line of chairs, was a miniature one proudly bearing the legend, ALAN BARNES.
