Storyline

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 David A Sparling <d.a.sparling@bradford.ac.uk>

Trivia

The railway track featured in the film was the heritage Severn Valley Railway that runs between the towns of Bridgnorth, Shropshire and Kidderminister, Worcestershire in the midlands of England. See more »

Goofs

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.

Quotes

Casey Brown: [Casey has told everyone at Candleshoe the real reason for her arrival and what she has discovered thus far. They are all at the graveyard looking at the headstone] ... And this was the last clue. He followed the Eclipse for riches and fame...
Priory: And if ye would prosper, do ye the same. What does it mean?
Lady St. Edmund: Why, it's very simple. The Eclipse was a ship. Captain Joshua's ship. There's a picture of it in the house, of Captain Joshua accepting the surrender of a Spanish vessel on the Spanish main. Dear ...

13 December 2003 | by (california) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie as a kid and watched it so much that i had all the lines memorized and wore out the betamax tape. I love David Niven in this movie and it was actually the reason I wanted to see the David Lean movies... my favorite scene is where Lady St. Edmund and Priory share a last dance. Some of the puzzles have remained in my head (For the sunrise student there is treasure among books) and have formed a long-lasting obsession with pirate treasures and real-life hidden treasure stories (oak island and rennes-le-chateau). Too bad movies of this type are no longer being made.
