Ceddie, Earl of Dorincourt's only grandson and heir lives in America with his mother. The Earl, getting old, asks them to come to England. Ceddie, now Lord Fauntleroy, is an adorable little fellow. The Earl, who at first was rather distant, becomes more en more fond of him. Then Minna shows up. She claims she was married to the Earl's eldest son and that her son, being their child, is the Earl's true heir... Written by

Reportedly, then child actor Ricky Schroder) did not like two things whilst making the movie. First, having a page-boy blond hairdo and second, wearing the velveteen suit with white white lace cuffs and collar. Schroder commented on the latter during the shoot saying that "the velveteen knickers" were "very itchy". See more »
At the Christmas banquet at the end of the movie, Ceddie is starting to eat just before having to give his speech. After his speech, the tables are still empty and dinner is begin served. See more »
Our family have loved this film for years. (see my comments posted in December 2003) But our recorded VHS version had deteriorated so much that it was no longer enjoyable to watch. I tried the "normal" means to searched for a DVD version but without success. I could only find VHS "collectable" copies at ludicrous prices (£40 to £50 plus postage, etc.) . Then I found someone in Holland offering a version on Ebay and thus discovered accident that a DVD version had been produced in Italy!
in English AND Italian. A quick web search enabled me to order from
an Italian book & media Internet seller and I got an excellent copy in proper box within 3 days for a total price including delivery of under £20 ($35). Worth every penny even though it had only mono sound and presumably must have been a copy from a film distributor's version !
