Small-time crook Harry Bundage discovers that the old manor house where Lady St. Edmund resides, with three orphans and her butler Priory is the resting place for a hoard of treasure. Unfortunately, he doesn't know where it is. Bundage recruits urchin Casey Brown to dupe Lady St. Edmund into thinking that she is her long-lost granddaughter, so she can search for clues to the location of the treasure. Unbeknownst to Bundage AND her ladyship, Lady St. Edmund is flat broke, and Priory and the children help her ladyship try to keep her home and pride. Joined by Casey, they do all the chores and Priory acts as the butler, gardener, chauffeur and an old major all at the same time! Written by

The English estate and stately home of "Candleshoe" was portrayed by Compton Wynyates in Warwickshire, England which is the home of British peer Spencer Douglas David Compton, nicknamed "Spenny", the 7th Marquess of Northampton. See more »
When Priory, Lady St.Edmond and the kids arrive at the station and find the train leaving, Peter states that it's the last stop before London. This would not be possible as in 1977 (The date on the for sale notice at Candleshoe) trains to London would not be steam hauled, they would be high speed electric trains, steam had not been used on mainlines in Britain for over a decade.

This movie is the movie that made me truly fall in love with jodie foster! I don't particularly know why but there is just something about her in Candleshoe that is different from even "Freaky Friday". The acting in this movie is generally very good, with stars like David Niven and Helen Hayes (Of course Jodie), to liven up the cast. This movie is great for younger and older audiences! The fight scene at the end is a bit long, but other than that the movie is awesome!
