Portions of several structures were used to depict Misselthwaite Manor. The exterior is primarily 16th-century Fountains Hall in Yorkshire and some of Allerton House in Yorkshire. The kitchen set was built in a classroom at Eton College. Lord Craven's study is at Harrow School. The main staircase was in St. Pancras Chambers, adjoining the busy St. Pancras Station in Central London. The bedroom interiors were shot on sets on 'A' stage at Pinewood Studios. The grounds were shot in Allerton Park in North Yorkshire and some of Luton Hoo in Hertfordshire as well as Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. The topiary arch used for the Misselthwaite garden leads directly onto Conistone Moor in North Yorkshire. See more »

My name is Mary Lennox. I was born in India. It was hot, and strange, and lonely in India. I didn't like it. Nobody by my servant, my ayah, looked after me. My parents didn't want me. My mother cared only to go to parties. And my father was busy with his military duties. I was never allowed to go to the parties. I watched them from my mother's bedroom window. I was angry, but I never cried. I didn't know how to cry.

This movie is one of my all-time favorite movies. I saw this movie about 5 times. I saw it with my friend on video tape when we were very young. Everything was beautiful - The cast, director's wonderful skills, music and the sight of a pretty garden. The girl who played Mary Lennox pulled out her best performance in this movie, Maggie Smith was as great as ever, the boy who played Collin was the most shining actor in the movie, and Martha was so kind and lovable character. Holland might be one of the most talented directors in the world, I give high points to the art in this movie and the beautiful music which I have listened to until the list of credits ended was so appealing to me. Give 10 out of 10.
