Storyline

Disney musical about Mother Carey, a Bostonian widow and her three children who move to Maine. Postmaster Osh Popham helps them move into a run-down old house and fixes it up for them. It's not entirely uninhabited, though; the owner, a Mr. Hamilton, is a mysterious character away in Europe, but Osh assures them he won't mind their living there, since he won't be coming home for a long time yet. The children and a cousin who comes to live with them have various adventures before an unexpected visitor shows up. Written by Anonymous

Utterly Charming
30 April 2003 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the little known Disney films, yet it's rife with the same charm and lovability that many of Disney's other films are. It's set in a quaint little town in Maine where a widow and her three children go to live after they lose their house in Boston due to bad investment advice from a relative. City folk meet country folk with a spoiled brat coming to live with them and a scheming daughter whose heart is in the right place. This is definitely a feel good film with catchy tunes and my favorite part, Tom Hamilton, who I wish they showed more of. Anyway, I highly recommend this film for people who are looking for films for their children or for anyone who loves classic Disney films. This film is hard to find I've found, but it's definitely worth the effort!
