Storyline

Alexander Armsworth and his family move to an authentic antibellum mansion, which once was owned by a river pirate. Alexander is drawn into a century-old mystery when he sees the ghost of a little girl, and she asks for his help in finding the "child of glass" by reciting a riddle. He has only a day or two to solve the riddle, or be haunted for the rest of his life! Written by Marta Dawes <smdawes@home.com>

Trivia

While most of the setting is authentic, the production company could not find a suitable crypt in the Danville, Kentucky cemetary, so the climactic sequence was shot in a fake tomb constructed in the actual graveyard. The phony mausoleum became a local attraction after the film aired. See more »

Quotes

Alexander Armsworth: Sleeping lies the murdered lass, vainly cries the child of glass, when the two shall be as one, the spirits journey will be done.

The Child Of Glass (1979)

I remember renting this movie at the local video store as a child, and I remember that it scared the crap out of me, but I've watched it again and I loved it. This movie was so good, I wish they would put it out on DVD. I got hold of the movie on video and it was hard to find. This movie was great, and the scene where Inez dances with Alexander was really sad. This was a great movie, that is spooky and happy. I recommend this to children ages ten to thirteen, it might scare younger kids. I also recommend The Watcher In The Woods if you like this movie. I give it 10/10.
