Little Lord Fauntleroy
Cedric, an American boy is informed that he is heir to the Earl of Dorincourt. He is sent to England to learn aristocratic ways and inherit the vast estate. The Earl is disliked by almost everyone who knows him, but Cedric sees only good in him. He also wins the hearts of the locals with kindnesses. Things are spoiled by the appearance of a vulgar, ambitious American claiming that her spoiled brat of a son is the true heir to the title.

Believe it or not, this is my introduction to this story. I thoroughly enjoyed the charm of this unabashed, feel-good presentation. Very nicely produced.
I will now, finally, try to check out the Freddie Bartholomew movie and I would love to somehow get hold of the Russian version!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
An excellent version of Francis Hodgson Burnett's classic story. Michael Benz is outstanding as the young lord and Truan Munro puts in a good performance as his American shoeshine friend, Dick. A TV series can always dramatise a book in more depth than a movie. The character of Fauntleroy is, therefore, more demanding on a young actor but Benz rises to the occasion with aplomb. Apparently in the horse riding scene with George Baker, Benz's horse bolted and was only stopped by George galloping after it!
A wonderful production by the BBC and a worthy addition to any boy film shelf.My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
