Movie Reviews

A movie, not the mini-series
Cynthia T. | New York, NY United States | 02/18/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"When a book is made into a mini-series, I'd like to buy the actual mini-series. If you're like me, and don't look carefully when you realize too late that this is an edited version of the original hit BBC mini-series, cut down to movie length. How would you feel if when another classic BBC adaptation of the same year, 1995, "Pride and Prejudice" was offered for sale, it was edited down to half its original length? It would be unacceptable, right?

Well. That's what's happened here. The "Little Lord Fauntleroy" mini-series was 300 min. This DVD is 170. Do the math.

"I have also seen this version of the movie and it is the best version I have seen. We enjoyed it with our children years ago and were hoping to purchase it for them as a Christmas Present. If it becomes available or someone knows where it can be purchased let us know."
Remarkably Good

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic remains gratifyingly true to the book. The acting is uniformly excellent. Sets, music, direction are all top notch. I actually have only two complaints - one small, one more substantial. Small complaint - Cedric's hairstyle. Larger complaint - for no reason that I can discern, they eliminated the episode where Cedric gives the crippled boy a ride into town on his pony and arranges to buy him a crutch. Since this is the first evidence the villagers have of Cedric's kind nature, it makes no sense to exclude it. (If V. Dann's review is correct, and the original was actually much longer, this would help explain the exclusion of that scene - although I can't imagine what they'd have done with an additional two hours. Except for the scene I mentioned, the story is fully told.) I rate this version at least as good as the Ricky Schroeder/Alec Guiness version (my personal favorite - when will that ever be available on DVD!?), better than the Mary Pickford version, and I need to see the Freddie Bartholomew version again to adequately compare."

"I saw this film as a kid and loved it, not even realizing that the great Alec Guiness was in it. Seeing it again, I relive the genuinely heartwarming rags-to-riches story of a young boy who turns out to be the only remaining heir to an earldom. The Earl is not warm to him because he was the product of marriage to a commoner, but gradually the boy wins the hearts of the entire aristocracy. But then a rival heir appears... This wonderful classic book is done ample justice by this charming film rendering."
