I first saw this film as a child on TV in Australia round 1973 - at which time it was already a very old film and I was only 7 years old.
I guess the fact I'm now 38 and writing about it means it stuck in my mind rather strongly.
I wanted for years and years to see it again and finally did in around 2000 - 27 years later. The childhood magic was still there.
Donat is wonderful. The whole story - escapist, romantic, spooky, fun and historically rich in yes - we know a rather fantasised way.
This is a feel-good film. Films similar to this are being made now - often called 'chick flick's and suchlike, but basically, what is wrong with a movie that makes you feel good? Not really deep, not really cerebral, but magical, funny, heartfelt, and a true escapist experience from our current modern lives,
Absorbing, fun and lovely.
Watch and Enjoy!
