I laughed, cried, I loved everything about this. In some other aspects this version isn't as detailed. I Highly Recommend This Movie to Everyone So that they May Watch it and enjoy it Also. The 1980 version is a fine quality colored movie. The Broadway production of Burnett's play opened December 10, 1888, at the , New York City. This was conveyed as adequately as it was possible for a low budget production like this.

It was published as a serial in from November 1885 to October 1886, then as a book by the publisher of St.
Meanwhile, back in New York, a homeless named Dick Tipton tells Cedric's old friend Mr. A bettercast could not have been found. The gradual way in which the adorable little lord wins the heart of the grumpy old Earl played to perfection by one of the greatest actors of all time in Sir Alex Guiness , is superb and their blossoming relationship is definitely the highlight of the film. It became a milestone in our family life. Actually a quite decent alternative to the polished 1936 version. The music score was particularly good too and even now I can rememberthe wonderful theme.
The changes Alec Guinness goes through could have been presented in a more credible manner - he sheds his aristocratic rigor and austerity too quickly. Benjamin moved to California to open a cattle ranch while Dick ended up in the streets. But compared with the actual novel this film isderived from, the story has been made vastly more enjoyable by theremoval of the hundreds of unnecessary adjectives in Burnett's badlywritten novel. I havealways been a fan of Alec Guiness and he plays the stoic Earlperfectly, even when Fauntleroy catches him off guard.

She claims she was married to the Earl's eldest son and that her son, being their child, is the Earl's true heir. But the Earl has long ago disowned his son for marrying outside the aristocracy. The production values are fabulous, the cinematography awesome, the music score perfect, the casting magnificent, the pacing on track and the story emotional and very involving. The story is well told, and from a strictly critical viewpoint may be abit too sentimental.
Some folks may call it kinda' sappy. This should definitely be on Top 250. It made me so happy! And the musical selection is very fine too! Hobbs, who decides to stay to help look after Cedric. The Earl becomes the man Cedric always innocently believed him to be. Ricky Schroder again seems totally unaware of his grandfather's real character and is apparently living in a kind of ideal world he creates with his childish naivety. He gets people to love his grandfather and shows his love to the people though his understanding of their plight. In fact, this version has bright colors.
Not only is is extremely well written and acted, it is also quite lovely visually. But his unfortunate death whenCedric was very young, means the nine year old will be the next Earl ofDorincourt.

I already wrote some of it in my review for the 1936 film and this version is based on the much older's plot, although not without its notorious differences - starting with the fact that this version is colored. This film looks positively much older than 1980, but this old-fashioned feeling is only part of its charm and also means that it gives a good feeling of the time it takes place. Another reason why I liked this film so much is that it was filmedlocally to where I used to live. After all, this isn't an American remake, but a British remake. It is Alec Guiness at his best --as good as StarWars--and Little Ricky Schroder as perfectly as the author wrote thebook. Consider the beautiful Englishcountryside as an important member of a stellar cast; mixed together itwould be difficult to make anything but an excellent film.
Ricky Schroder enchants as Ceddie, for his cuteness and also for his notorious talent. It opened May 14, 1888, at in London, and was presented in the English provinces, France, Boston and New York City. Cedric is happily reunited with his mother, and Mr. Without a doubt the best of the Fauntleroy pictures. This film is essentially a remake of a 1936 film with the same title.
