[reading a letter from Ceddie aloud to Dick]
"I miss you and Dick. There's a dungeon under the castle but my grandpa never put anyone in there."
Oh yeah? "Your old friend, Ceddie Lord Fauntleroy. P.S. - I have to sign it that way."

I remember this film with great fondness. The film is full of well known British actors and American's Connie Booth and Ricky Schroder. I would dearly love to see this film again. I first saw it at the cinema, which would often show TV movies, and then it seemed to be shown on TV almost every Christmas.
The music score was particularly good too and even now I can remember the wonderful theme.
Another reason why I liked this film so much is that it was filmed locally to where I used to live. The castle scenes were filmed in and around Belvoir Castle in Lincolnshire (near Grantham), and where the Duke of Rutland resides. The shop/village scenes were filmed in the village of Exton, Rutland (near Oakham - my home town).
Hope to see a DVD copy sometime! BTW would love to know Patrick Stewart's thoughts/memories on this film!
