Additional Details

Originally released as a motion picture in 1948.

Montgomery Clift, Aline MacMahon, Jarmila Novotna, Wendell Corey, Ivan Jandl.

"In post-World War II Germany, a small boy who survivied Auschwitz wanders alone -- feral, mute and terrified. He finds a makeshift home with a big-hearted GI, while the mother he does not remember searches desperately for him. Starring a then-unknown Montgomery Clift in his movie debut, directed in a near-documentary style by Fred Zinnemann and filmed in the ragged, rubble-strewn skeleton of Nuremberg, The Search vividly captures the horrifying human cost of war. This milestone of filmmaking won two 1948 Academy Awards: Best Motion Picture Story and a special award to Ivan Jandl for his haunting performance as the lost child."--Container.

DVD-R; Full screen (4x3, 1.33.1); mono. sound mixed to Dolby digital 2.0.

Worth watching

I've seen this movie twice, probably on TCM. I enjoy WWII movies.particularly those made during or soon after as they have the immediacy of the period.
Monty Cliff is particularly appealing as is the boy.
