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

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 »

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."!!!
