When Samantha returns home after defending Nellie and the girls against Eddie, she is practicing piano and when she looks out the window, she sees Nellie walking across the lawn with a basket of laundry while wearing a black dress and white apron. There is not enough time between Samantha leaving Nellie and her practicing piano for Nellie to have changed and begun her chores.
Also, as she would have been new, the housekeeper or head maid would have gone over with her what she was to do and therefore she would not have headed straight into chores, making it even less likely for Samantha to have seen her working while she practiced piano. See more »

This is the kind of movie that leaves you with a magical, wonderful, warm feeling. It was full of warmth, kindness, giving, bravery, joy,loyalty, beauty... The scenery was beautiful as well and complimented the wonderful storyline, which takes place in the early 1900s. Samantha is shipped off to New York, where she misses her home town and friends. In New York, however, she shows great strength and bravery as we are taken along her adventure. Children and adults alike can enjoy this movie, and Samantha, for the most part, is a wonderful role-model for young girls. I wish more movies were made of this high quality! This movie was an absolute delight, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
