[the children try to discover if a substance is poisonous]
Georgie Latimer: I'm not giving it to her because I think it is poison, I'm only making sure it isn't! Why are you pulling a funny face? It's either Mrs. Wickens or her cat, and that cat never did anyone any harm!

Crazy Credits

The closing credits feature many of the characters waving goodbye to the audience, with an associated caption showing each actor's name. However the character names are never shown in the opening or closing credits. Only the very minor characters are given a conventional "actor / character" credit. See more »

Proto Others
14 February 2003 | by (Grantham,Lincs,UK) – See all my reviews

The very first time I saw The Others my mind rushed immediately back to this gem...very much a similar premise, people from different periods of time appear to each other as ghosts. It's a nice little film. It's long been my wife's favourite, and its available on DVD from Feb 24, 2003 in the UK which is ooh so cool :)
