Movie Info

The Green Years was an important rung in the career of child actor Dean Stockwell. He stars as a morose young Irish lad, raised by ultra-strict Scottish relatives of his late mother. He is drawn out of his shell by roguish great-grandfather Charles Coburn. In time, Stockwell grows up to be Tom Drake, and Coburn is still around to keep things lively. Adapted from a best-selling novel by A.J. Cronin, The Green Years is entertaining on several unexpected levels, from the thick Scots and Irish brogues of the largely American cast, to the odd pairing of husband and wife actors Hume Cronyn (age 35) and Jessica Tandy (age 37), here playing father and daughter.
