Single mother Marsha Booth is a book writer with a deadline . . . and two rambunctious young sons. The boys are not happy at the thought of spending the summer at their rented seaside cottage because it means leaving their best friend, Morgan, in the city for a sleepy little beach town where nothing ever happens. Alfie, the eldest, is a budding filmmaker who decides to make use of the local lighthouse as "Dracula's Castle" with little brother Leonard in the lead role. They are accompanied by their babysitter, teenager Jean (who is the sheriff's daughter) and their new sidekick, a mutt named "Watson". But, unbeknownst to them, two local thieves Keith and Noah are hiding the prized Daumier diamond necklace that they stole in the lighthouse (it is valued at $100,000!) and don't fancy a group of nosy kids hanging around. Will Alfie & Co. find themselves in over their heads and will the truth really be found in the celluloid?

This TV Disney Film inspired me to become a writer
3 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story opens as school is getting out. Mom, a writer, loads up her two boys and her trusty typewriter, to head out to a quaint seaside location somewhere in Northern California. Harking back to a simpler time, the three live in a bungalow, mere feet from a beautiful harbor. This well-worn set-up has stayed with me for life, bestowing upon me the association of summer and adventure. Jewel thieves use an old lighthouse to store their booty, and amateur film makers, brothers, use the same lighthouse to make Dracula's castle. The story is very Willy Folk St. John. It's simple storytelling narrative was perfect for 1973, and the cast is filled with fresh, all-American faces. So Disney....

Thank you Uncle Walt
