"This version of Heidi was my absolute favorite movie as a child. I have the VHS version and decided to upgrade to the DVD. I couldn't believe it when I started watching it that the first part of the film is not even included. We don't see how Heidi got to her grandfathers, met Peter or his grandmother. I don't know if it is somehow a mistake on just my movie or if they are all missing the first scenes. The quality of the rest of the film was fine and just as good as I remembered. But, if you want to see the whole film, get the VHS."
A Little-Known Treasure

"I've never seen the Shirley Temple version of this movie and I have no interest because I know there will be pouting and the character of heidi would never pout. This version shows Heidi to be as strong-willed as her stubbern gradfather even though she has no one to care for her. Furthermore when she goes to live with her cousin Clara, the characters all go through the transition of bringing her into the family -especially well done by the actress of Clara. A number of different plot strings are developed, all of wich come together nicely at the end. The combination of great performances in every role with great script-writing and the beautiful Alps make this movie a must for every family's shelf."
Lovely film; poor DVD quality

"Very enjoyable movie marred by washed out color. The Alps are breathtaking, but you wouldn't know it from this DVD.So, I give the movie itself 4 stars, and the DVD 1 star."

"This is a great story with wonderful characters and fine acting but the quality of the DVD is awful. There are scenes that are out of focus, fuzzy and choppy. Even for the great price, extremely poor quality."
