Far and away the best version ever made! (by richardstrickland)
Not only an excellent leading cast, Alec Guinness superb as the curmudgeony earl and Ricky Schroeder believably charming as the American boy thrust into the world of the English nobility, the minor characters are also exceptional: Eric Porter as the earl's steward and Patrick Stewart as the head coachman both particularly memorable. The pace of the film is also excellent, events happen and characters develop with interesting detail but without over emphasis or very drawn out scenes. Overall, in our family's top 20 or even top 10 fims. So, why on earth can't the studio issue this <more>
film on VHS or DVD! Considering the absolute rubbish that is now available even on DVD there must surely be a market for an excellent seasonal "family" film like this. We made a recording when this film was shown on TV sometime in the early 80s, since when it has been played at least twice a year for the last 20 years and both sound and vision have now deteriorated to a point where it is almost unwatchable. PLEASE! someone, pass this request on to the studio and get it issued on DVD. We know there are many families like us who would be happy to pay £15 or so for a new version to play for the next 20 years.
Remembering this movie from a fathers perspective (by barpel)
This film was released in 1980 as stated , three years after my younger daughter was born. I taped it on TV, and she watched it avidly for many years. It became a milestone in our family life.Within a year of first seeing it, my daughter knew every line of the script, and we would watch her watching the movie, her lips moving, speaking all the parts... she was of course, going to marry Ricky Schroder . She still has the tape, and even at 28 years of age, still watches it from time to time. But it is sadly worn, and like another reviewer, I too long for it to be re-released on DVD. It is a <more>
beautifully made story performed equally beautifully by a superb cast.It is an exiting story for all ages, with a feel good ending reminiscent of a kinder and more gentle age. May it last forever, and if anyone knows where it may be purchased, either new on tape, or even if it has indeed been released on DVD...please, PLEASE let me know...Enjoy! Brian Arpel
A masterful adaptation of a venerable classic (by Marta)
Long ago, CBS used to make excellent adaptations of classic novels, before reality TV poisoned the sensibilities of the viewing public. Little Lord Fauntleroy is one of their best, filled with charm and energy and superior performances all around.Filmed in England with virtually no other American in it than Ricky Schroeder, it has the proper Victorian feel to it. Ricky brings his brash but honest Yankee personality into this staid atmosphere and shakes up his grandfather's long-held prejudices against the Colonies and his own family and tenants. Schroeder was the ultimate child actor; no <more>
other I could think of would have done this role justice as he is perfect for the part. His beautiful blond hair, in the requisite pageboy required for a Victorian Lord Fauntleroy, frames his angelic face and visually sets him on a plane above every other actor, even Alec Guinness. Guinness is superb as the bitter and self-absorbed grandfather. The rest of the supporting players are excellent, especially Colin Blakely as the opinionated Mr. Hobbs, the American grocer. The English countryside and architecture also have their own role to play here. The landscape is lush and beautiful, and the enormous estate that Lord Fauntleroy will inherit is magnificent, adding much to the atmosphere.This is a fine family film which is especially wonderful to watch at Christmas; unfortunately it hasn't been out on VHS since 1980 and hasn't been released in the US on DVD, but has been released in an Italian edition with the English soundtrack and Italian menu options. The transfer is excellent and the film is uncut. This is not hard to find but is in Region 2 format, so regular US DVD players won't play it. If you ever run across a copy of the film in any form don't hesitate to snap it up. This is one of those rare films that truly brings a novel to life, and it shouldn't be missed.
I remember this film with great fondness. The film is full of well known British actors and American's Connie Booth and Ricky Schroder. I would dearly love to see this film again. I first saw it at the cinema, which would often show TV movies, and then it seemed to be shown on TV almost every Christmas.The music score was particularly good too and even now I can remember the wonderful theme.Another reason why I liked this film so much is that it was filmed locally to where I used to live. The castle scenes were filmed in and around Belvoir Castle in Lincolnshire near Grantham , and where <more>
the Duke of Rutland resides. The shop/village scenes were filmed in the village of Exton, Rutland near Oakham - my home town .Hope to see a DVD copy sometime! BTW would love to know Patrick Stewart's thoughts/memories on this film!
I love this movie. Well done and well acted - a wonderful family film, especially for Christmas. It is heartwarming, has beautiful scenes and is a fantastic movie for kids and adults. It holds a wonderful message, for the Christmas season and is just a joy to watch, with your family. This movie has become a favorite Christmas tradition, for my home, along with Rudolph and the Grinch. I wore my VHS tape out, to the point of it snapping apart. For some reason, it is hard to find on DVD or VHS, although it can be found...for a price. However, I found it on YouTube, for FREE, in it's <more>
entirety, with no interruptions. So, go to YouTube, download it, and ENJOY, before somebody removes it! There are a few online stores that carry it, on DVD, but it costs about $30, not including shipping. I would suggest just going to YouTube and downloading to a disc, for yourselves.
Young American is Heir to English title. (by katsonline2)
I first saw this movie many years ago and thought it was very heart warming. Although a lot of folks prefer the old Freddie Bartholomew version, I have grown very fond of this version. It has a wonderful cast and the story is told beautifully. Some folks may call it kinda' sappy...but I just LOVE this movie! It has become a Christmas tradition, in my home! Just a sweet, old fashioned, feel good movie and Ricky Schroder was SO cute! I had the VHS tape, that we would watch a few times, during the holidays. The tape finally wore out and I haven't found it on DVD. I am so glad to have <more>
found it online, so we can continue to enjoy it and make our holiday programming complete!
Oh, games are important. They prepare a boy for the larger game of life, I'm told. (by Sylviastel)
A wonderful cast highlights this classic children's novel. A young Ricky Shroeder played the Little Lord Fauntleroy Cedric who immigrates with his mother and Mary to England. His grandfather has summoned his arrival but not without complications. His grandfather hates his mother. Connie Booth Fawlty Towers did a fabulous job going up against Sir Alec Guinness in his role as the Earl. The film has some sweet moments. The cast included one of my favorite actors, Rolf Saxon, in his first film role after acting school. I was surprised to see how much of a role. There are many notable <more>
performances like Sir Patrick Stewart; Rachel Kempson; Patsy Rowlands; Carmel McSharry; and others. Sadly, this film version of the story isn't shown as much anymore on television. It would be nice to see it on a weekend afternoon. The quality is first rate.
