Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original story comes alive Nov. 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy-to-miss gem Feb. 28 2003
Format:DVD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone dreams of a long lost rich relative Oct. 29 2006
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality....too bad. Feb. 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I love this story but was very disappointed the poor quality of the DVD version. It was transferred directly from a film in poor condition. You can see lint, white spots and lines all through the movie. The scenes are very dark around the edges. Like they say, you get what you pay for. No wonder the price was so cheap. Why don't they stop people from selling such poorly done DVD's on-line? Guess the word just has to get out to watch out for certain companies. Well you are duly warned about this one. I don't know about the out 2 versions on this website, but they were out of stock anyway.

2.0 out of 5 stars Little Lord Fauntleroy - 1936 Jan. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The 1936 version is NO where near as good as the 1980, remake for TV version, staring Alec Guiness and Ricky Shroeder. We too, have been looking for the 1980 remake, to replace our Beta copy. Until our tape became no longer viewable, and our Beta machine gave out, our family watched the 1980 copy of Little Lord Fauntleroy, every year at Christman. We really miss that tradition and hope which ever studio owns the rights to the movie, will release it for distribution to the public, SOON.
