What a little pearl of a movie! No smut, no foul language, no violence...just good clean shenanigans. They don't make them like this any more, and it's a shame. Haley Mills is as sweet and feisty as can be, and all the supporting players do good jobs. But for me the real star of the movie is Burl Ives. His down-home folksiness is just perfect for the role of the good-hearted Osh. His singing is timeless. Seeing this movie makes me want to fire up the time machine.
