December, 1900 Miss Heathwood's Boarding School for Girls. Thrust into the chaotic and unfamiliar world of a boarding school at Christmas, Mandie finds herself hounded by new rules and regulations at every turn. Unable to grasp the finer points of high society, she constantly falls into trouble with Miss Heathwood, the headmistress. While visiting the school's forbidden attic, Mandie stumbles upon a mystery from which she is warned to flee. Seeking the truth will require Mandie to lie, but it just might provide the key that unlocks the memories of a long forgotten Christmas. This installment follows "Mandie and the Secret Tunnel" featuring Dean Jones and "Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure" with Hayley Mills. The films are based on the "Mandie" books by Lois Gladys Leppard.Written by
I enjoyed watching this film very much. What a joy to watch a film which can be shown to any age group. There is lovely scenery with gorgeous horses, including a sled pulled in the snow by four miniature horses. The costumes looked very authentic. There is a religious theme to the story's moral. It also has the human interest plot. And the film deals with prejudice at the turn of the century. The director used old homes in Georgia and some of the filming was done locally. It was fun to recognize the locales. One of the actors plays an Indian extremely realistically. One of the actresses sings exquisitely to the wonderful original score. This film is suitable for young people but might appeal mostly to girls.
