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.

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.

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.

Don't let all those who prefer the 1980 filming of this story influence you before looking at this classic. Yes, it is black and white and the style of talking is perhaps odd to us in the 21st century. But it is of historical value and I believe that as the cast and crew lived in a time period closer to that of the story's timeline and that their way of speaking had more of the older and "englisher" english than that slang we americans drawl from our nasal passages now-a-days,there is a certain genuine charm that spews forth from the actors. Get them both if the 1980 version becomes available, but see this one for what it is, a true film classic! R.A.M.

A meticulous 1936 David O. Selznik production from the classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett and starring Freddie Bartholomew and Mickey Rooney.
A true family classic about Ceddie, a young Brooklyn boy who awakens one day in 1855 and discovers he's an English Lord. He and his widowed mother are taken to live with the cold, unfeeling Earl of Dorincourt in England. The Earl takes an immediate liking to young independent Ceddie and undergoes a most remarkable change that still connects emotionally. Worth finding. Handsomely directed by John Cromwell. (Full Screen, B&W, 98 minutes, Not Rated)

Format: DVD
The 1936 version is good! But, the 1980 remake for TV, staring Alec Guiness and Ricky Shroeder, is the Five Star Version to us. We too, have been looking for the 1980 remake for many years. We origionally had a copy on Beta, which has long since become unviewable. Until then we watched the video every year at Christmas. This year, our daughter and son-in-law searched the internet extensively, for the 1980 version. They finally ended up giving up, and purchased the 1936 version on DVD for us. We would be very greatful to anyone who can tell us how to get the 1980 film. Thank you!
