    Can anyone help me to name a film I saw years and years ago, probably late 80's or early 90's. I can only remember snippets of it so my description is not very clear. The title was '_ and _' and was actually the characters names, which I can't actually remember! The story was centered around a young boy and girl.. the girl seemed to have gone through a traumatic experience and saw her father killed while she hid under a bed. She is quite attached to some sort of doll, I think. The girl sings Frere Jacques quite a few times, not sure if she is actually French. I think the boy manages to help the girl to become less traumatised in the end.

    Anyone got any ideas? I will let you know if I remember anything else about it.

    This was a TV movie called The Child of Glass. It was by Disney in the late 70's.

    I remember Tom Skerrit's psycho killer whistling this song in the final episode of "Bonanza" ("The Hunter") as he stalked Michael Landon. Made a pretty spooky episode even creepier.

    Frere Jacques is also featured in The Beatles' No. 1 hit Paperback Writer, when John and George are singing backing vocals to the third and fourth verses. A year later, they incorporated La Marseillaise into another of their chart-toppers, All You Need is Love.
