The best of the film versions of this story!
6 July 2002 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

Films of "The Prince and the Pauper" are mainly judged by the performances of the boy boys] who play the title roles.And in this regard Sean Scully is unsurpassed as both Prince and Pauper.He played both parts with verve and panache,and subsequently made this version the best one filmed to date.So why can't I buy a video copy of it?
