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.

Still My Favorite Disney Movie:)
22 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I LOVED this movie. Go try to buy it on ebay,it goes for no less than $70-80 dollars! Disney NEEDS to re-release this movie on VHS and DVD WITH extras.

A great spooky Mystery for kids and teens. Has a wonderful feel to it. Why Disney doesn't make more like this, escapes me.

It's also sad that the main character(Alexander played by Steve Shaw) died in a motorcycle accident at the age of 25. (in 1990).

I'm also researching where the other actors are that played in this movie.

We should all email Disney till they re-release this again. My own kids love this movie as well!
