The Summer Of My German Soldier DVD (Region 1) Color. Kristy McNichol, Bruce Davison, Esther Rolle.

During World War II, Anton Reiker (Bruce Davison), a German POW is assigned to work at a local farm in Georgia. Reiker escapes, taking refuge in a barn owned by the Bergens, a Jewish family. At first terrified by her "guest", teen-aged Patty Bergen (Kristy McNichol) falls in love with Anton, zealously hiding him from the rest of her family and the authorities. The two are bound by fate and futility, wondering where their love will lead them. Esther Rolle, playing Bergen's maid, won an Emmy for her performance; an additonal nomination went to the script by Jane-Howard Hammerstein, based on Bette Green's classic young adult novel.
