(May contents spoilers, would be seen as a synopsis)

The amazing encounter of some sympathetic children with a poor sick young dragon found on a beach in the night. The children succeeded in their attempt to bring him slowly in the castle of their parents. They took care of him, nourished the poor dragon with oysters, enough to make him recover completely, so he was able to take the place of the fire in the furnace of the central heating of the castle to the great surprise of the parents who did not know the adventure of their children who realized all that out of the knowledge of their parents.

I saw that film when I was thirteen in the early fifties and found it very interesting and amazing to see. Perhaps today it would be considered by modern children as infantile, but in that time it was highly appreciated.
