Rating: 4/5 -- Still entertaining drama, though dated, starring Bartholomew and Rooney, two great child actors of the time.
The childhood classic handsomely turned out by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Adaptation of classic novel is a charming fairy tale. Full Review
Common Sense Media
Rating: C+ -- An excellent children's pic, for others the contrived melodrama might at best only be bearable. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 3.5/4 -- It's a simple children's story, idealistic and dangerously close to cloying, but in the best tradition of Old Hollywood, it's a real treat. Full Review
From the Front Row
Freddie Bartholomew (DAVID COPPERFIELD, CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS) plays Cedric Errol, a poor Brooklyn boy destined for greatness in this film based on the lovable story by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Although Ceddie doesn't know it, his deceased father was an English nobleman. When it becomes apparent that Ceddie is heir to an English title and an immense fortune, his mother (Dolores Costello Barrymore) takes him back to England, where they discover that her father-in-law, the earl of Dorincourt (C. Aubrey Smith), despises Americans. To win his birthright, Ceddie must struggle against false claims to his title as well as his grandfather's cantankerous disposition. Director John Cromwell (SO ENDS OUR NIGHT, OF HUMAN BONDAGE) at times considered LITTLE LORD FAUNTLEROY his finest film; with a graceful script by novelist Hugh Walpole, an excellent supporting cast, a buoyant sense of humor, and a gem of a performance from Bartholomew, he may well have been right.
A poor young lad finds his life changed when he leaves the streets of New York City to become an English lord.
