hope they bring this back on vhs.
16 November 2001 | by (prince george b.c.) – See all my reviews

The film throughout shows an innocence of the time which has been lost. The old house with the stairs to the bedrooms still sticks in my memory all these years latter. The plot could be used at any time in history but all of the scenery, comments, expressions are unique to this wonderful film and to a time long gone.
