Product Description

After the death of Cedric ('Ceddie')'s English father, he and his mother live together in Brooklyn. Cedric's grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, had disowned Cedric's father when he married an American. But when the Earl's remaining son dies, he accepts Cedric as Lord Fauntleroy, his heir, and the Earl sends for Cedric and his mother. Cedric uses the first of his newly found wealth to do some favors for his old friends, and then heads to England, where he must try to overcome the Earl's dislike for Cedric's mother. This is the ONLY authorized edition of this classic film from the estate of David O. Selznick, restored and remastered in high definition from the George Eastman House.

If you want to accurately compare the 1936 movie and the 1980 TV version of Little Lord Fauntleroy, I suggest you first read the story written by Francis Hodgson Burnett. The casting, characterization and dialogue in the 1936 movie is outstanding and is almost an exact visualization of the original story as written by Burnett. The strong point for the 1980 TV version is of course Alec Guiness. Unfortunately in the 1980 version "Dearest" is portrayed more or less as a feminist and Schroeder as Fauntleroy is - well too cute. Visual appealing, it is but another example of modern screen writers believing they can write the story better than the original author. If you have to choose, pick the 1936 new DVD version. You will not be disappointed.

May I gently suggest that these other reviewers are missing the point. This delicate David O. Selznick production is brimming with lovely and innocent emotions that are all too out-of-fashion in today's cynical world. Each scene is carefully constructed, with wonderful, warm and kindly touches. Each part is beautifully acted, especially the young Freddie Bartholomew (a few years before another excellent role in Captains Courageous). And the story is one of redemption and good vs. meanness. If you can't handle sweet and sentimental emotions, then maybe this isn't for you--otherwise, these are old-fashioned people to adore!

This Alpha Video of Little Lord Fauntleroy is very good. It is a bare-bones edition -- just the film and a very poor Index (only 6 chapters), but the print is clean and the sound is good.

I was afraid to buy any edition, because so many Amazon reviewers wrote about badly shortened editions, etc., and as usual, because Amazon shoves all the reviews together, and because so many Amazon reviewers are negligent in specifying which edition they are talking about, I was afraid to buy anything. Eventually, somehow, I determined (maybe by consulting another site, I can't remember) that the Alpha version was complete, and took the chance and purchased it. I'm glad I did.

The Alpha Video says 100 minutes on the back of the case, but the actual playing time is 102 minutes, so don't be alarmed and infer that 2 minutes are missing. They aren't. The film is complete.

According to the IMDb the original aspect ratio was 1.37 to 1. The Alpha Video (on the Alpha Oldies site) says 1.33 to 1. That is pretty close, so I don't imagine much is chopped off, if anything.

The film is a simple but beautiful one. The script is good, the acting is superb, and the story flows naturally. C. Aubrey Smith, one of my favourite character actors, gets one of his rare leading roles (along with the child star Freddie Bartholomew), and he shines in it. Just about every actor shines in this picture.

The film might be a little more convincing to the modern viewer, who is used to grittier fare, if Freddie Bartholomew were slightly less than perfect, and if his grandfather were a little nastier and harder to win over. That oversimplification is perhaps its one flaw. Still, for those who want harsh realism, we have 50 years of modern films available for watching. And this film still works. It is a sweet, moving tale.

This story has been filmed several times through the centuries. Each brings with it the strengths and weaknesses of the time period in which it was made. A few examples are:

1914 - Gerald Royston - Cedric Erroll

1921 - Mary Pickford - Little Lord Fauntleroy/Dearest

1936 - Freddy Bartholomew - Cedric `Ceddie' Erroll

1976 - Glen Anderson - Lord Fauntleroy

1980 - Rick Schroder - Lord Fauntleroy (Ceddie Errol)

1995 - Michael Benz - Cedric Errol

2003 - Aleksei Vesyolkin - Cedric

As with any story everyone has there favorite interpretation. This is a review of the 1936 version.

Ceddie (Freddy Bartholomew) is a well meaning kid, which is wise beyond his years and very well mannered. He lives alone with his mother Dearest (Dolores Costello Barrymore.) He is the product of his environment (America depression era) where he is mentored by a wise grocer (Guy Kibbee,) and befriended by others such as the shoe shine boy (Mickey Rooney.)

Turns out that he is the long lost grandson of the Earl of DorinCourt (C. Aubrey Smith,) and heir to an estate in England. So he is "Little Lord Fauntleroy." He is removed from the only home he knows and whisked off to England. There he does not realize that his grandfather can not stand his mother (they never met) so she has to stay in another house.

All is going swimmingly until the "Real Little Lord Fauntleroy" the son of the other brother shows up. Now what will happen? Is `Ceddie' destined to be second fiddle? Will his mother go back to America? What do his old friends think when they find out? Looks like curtains for everyone.

No apparent transfer problems from a good master film. Video and audio are good enough but appear to not have ben redone for transfer to DVD. The video shows little noise (white or black specs) mostly apparent where a reel change would have occurred. Still, the video appears in very good condition. Perhaps the source film itself has been reconditioned or maintained since it was originally released in 1936. Audio is English mono. No subtitles or Close Captioning. Basic menu functions of play, scenes, and trailers. DVD came in a keep case. No bios or extras.
This may or may not be relevant. This is the second DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment that I've purchased (I haven't gone through my entire library to see which others). The first has too many discrepancies between the spoken word and the subtitle. This one has no subtitles or Close Captioning. Proper subtitle or close captioning would have greatly enhanced the DVD. Perhaps an old film like this is in such small demand that the expense would have been financially prohibitive. Further vigilance towards this company's releases is warranted.
