I love this film and think it is criminal that it isn't out on DVD for everyone to enjoy. It is Alec Guiness at his best --as good as Star Wars--and Little Ricky Schroder as perfectly as the author wrote the book.
The mother is great and all the supporting cast too. The beauty of English countryside and of New York are wonderful. The lines are terrific. The mother's speech about American values and the lawyers prejudice of English countryside are just fantastic.
I have a worn VHS tape from the TV of it that may break any year now. so I really would like it out on DVD.
A great children's or Cmas film. I put it up to the level with "It's a Wonderful Life."!!!
