. The Personal History, Adventures, Experience, & Observation of David Balfour the Younger
Based on a novel by Stevenson,at the time when the Scottish rebels were fighting against the English king and his tax collectors .
The hero is a young boy,who recalls Jim Hawkins ,David Copperfield as well as John Mohune ("Moonfleet" );as could be expected ,this young "laird" does not take a rebel stand ,he trusts his king and he already speaks like a little man ,a true noble.His "initiation rites " like those of the other characters I mention take him to adulthood.
Best moment is the arrival in the wicked uncle's (a Dickensian character,a cross between Murdstone and Uriah Heep)castle ,a place where you eat porridge (ungenerous portions)and where a horror movie could take place.
The first of at least five versions (including the MTV one which is twice as long as the others).Well acted.
