Low Production Values, Faithful Adaptation
25 February 2011 | by (Rural Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

Although the acting is not great, the characters at least mostly look right. Audio recording quality (on version I saw) is low.

BUT, faithful to book in look and presentation. The producers were not vain enough to think they could improve on a great children's book writer ... or McCloskey himself made sure it was not messed up.

I think they should have at least gotten a ganglier Homer. This movie is in full color (film, not video tape)

A for effort. B- for Execution.

P.S. Available on YouTube under "The Doughnuts," being before 1964, this work is quite likely in the public domain.
