This is a pretty bad clue, but ALL I saw was the last minute or so of the movie.
There was a group of kids ( ages 8-14, maybe), and there was some “strange guy” in town, and all the kids were terrified of him.
Apparently, he had some kind of deformity, or he had been seriously injured, because (it seems) that he was a bag or something on his head, so that people wouldn’t be terrified.
Anyway, at the end, this group of kids is near him, and he calls out to one of them to come over. The kid is hesitant at first, but eventually does, and finds out that the guy is not an evil demon after all.
Then the movie ends.
It’s black-and-white, and probably dates from the early '60’s. It had a “To Kill a Mockingbird” fell to it.
I saw it only one time, and that was over 20 years ago, but that’s the best I can do.
