Back when TV portrayed kids as kids should be, this is a refreshing little TV movie about two children who are transported to the past to clear their great, great uncle's family name. An uncle who was alway branded 'the black sheep' of the family. From the get go our young heroine, Bridget, is endeared to the heirlooms and handsome picture of Otto Fromer. In their adventure they realize the rumors about their great great uncle were misconstrued, he was a hero! Bridget and her brother endanger their lives to protect Otto from capture and hanging, and hopefully a terrible fate lost at sea.
The script is solid and the story flows along, you wish it was more than 45 minutes! The performances are wonderful all around. If you are an Adam Baldwin fan, this is a real treat. His character Otto is very dashing and adorable. Amy Locane proved herself to be a real talent as a child actress. This little gem is so rare, it's out of print! It's worth it if you can find it on auction sites.
