When I was a young lad, I saw this movie, and it touched me. There are just some movies, that do that. The desperation of Andrew finding trying to find the cat, and at the end, it warms you and you cannot help but have a tear in your eye. Susan Hampshire is beautiful in this movie, in both character and attractiveness. The other character actors hold their own as well. The scenery is nice. The movie is a bit dated in certain parts, but there is no profanity or scenes that might be disturbing to young children. This movie is available in both VHS and DVD, but definitely buy the DVD for the extra features, plus it will keep it from wearing out when your children or grandchildren want to watch it again. A wonderful family movie to keep ready for that rainy day. Enjoy!!!
