Boy From Mercury, The

Eight year old Harry’s father is dead, his mother is worn out and his brother has little time for him. His sole obsession is the Flash Gordon serials screened on Saturday mornings as he conjures up ways of dealing with the school bully. Isolated, he is convinced that he and his dog Max come from Mercury and is in secret contact with the distant planet at night, using his flashlight. While his belief that he is in fact a Mercurian never dims, he does learn to accept his Earthling family and to value their loyalty.
