Storyline

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 Willy Vanhaelen <willy.vanhaelen@advalvas.be>

Trivia

Reportedly, the film was the first time that the title role of "Little Lord Fauntleroy", a character who is an American boy, had been played by an experienced boy actor with an authentic American background. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end, Mr Hobbs and Dick read Cedric's letter in New York, informing them of Minna's competing claim. Mr Hobbs shows Dick a newspaper article stating that the legitimate heir to Dorincourt had been found. The newspaper is dated January 24, 1872. This implies that the conversation between the two takes place after Christmas. In the following sequences, however, Mr Hobbs and the Tipton brothers travel to Dorincourt and spend Christmas there. Of course it is possible that the stay of the three at Dorincourt occurs over the next Christmas, but this would require almost a year to pass between Dick's discovery that Minna is a fraud and the revelation. This would be unlikely, given Havisham's and the Earl's urgency to resolve the matter. See more »

Remembering this movie from a fathers perspective
29 November 2005 | by (Brisbane Australia) – See all my reviews

This film was released in 1980 (as stated), three years after my younger daughter was born. I taped it on TV, and she watched it avidly for many years. It became a milestone in our family life.

Within a year of first seeing it, my daughter knew every line of the script, and we would watch her watching the movie, her lips moving, speaking all the parts...(she was of course, going to marry Ricky Schroder). She still has the tape, and even at 28 years of age, still watches it from time to time. But it is sadly worn, and like another reviewer, I too long for it to be re-released on DVD. It is a beautifully made story performed equally beautifully by a superb cast.

It is an exiting story for all ages, with a feel good ending reminiscent of a kinder and more gentle age. May it last forever, and if anyone knows where it may be purchased, either new on tape, or even if it has indeed been released on DVD...please, PLEASE let me know...Enjoy! Brian Arpel
