A well made, well remembered production of a timeless classic
2 May 2002 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Of all the productions of Little Lord Fauntleroy that I have seen, this 1976 BBC version was the most memorable and pleasant to look at. I saw it on American TV (PBS, I think) in the late 1970s.

It was shot on tape, so has that "immediate" look that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. In this case, it worked very well, and it's in part the video appearance that sets it apart from the many filmed productions that have been made of this well known story over the years. This BBC production had a bright, attractive appearance and possessed a nice overall balance in all aspects.

It was well cast, well acted, and well directed. More's the pity that It hasn't been aired in the U.S. since the '70s, so far as I know. I would certainly like to see it again; however, it is not available commercially -- and don't hold your breath waiting for any of the networks, cable or otherwise, to re-air it! If you live in one of the Media's favored places, like Australia, for instance, and do get a chance to view it, I highly recommend it.
