Editorial Reviews

After the death of Cedric ('Ceddie')'s English father, he and his mother live together in Brooklyn. Cedric's grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, had disowned Cedric's father when he married an American. But when the Earl's remaining son dies, he accepts Cedric as Lord Fauntleroy, his heir, and the Earl sends for Cedric and his mother. Cedric uses the first of his newly found wealth to do some favors for his old friends, and then heads to England, where he must try to overcome the Earl's dislike for Cedric's mother. This is the ONLY authorized edition of this classic film from the estate of David O. Selznick, restored and remastered in high definition from the George Eastman House.

In the late 1800′s, there was one book that was so popular, it led to the popularity of velvet. The book was "Little Lord Fauntleroy", written by English playwright and author Frances Hodgson Burnett and was originally published in St. Nicholas Magazine between Nov. 1885 through Oct. 1886 and later followed as a book.

The book was quite elaborate when it came to the details of the young Fauntleroy's clothing that its impact on American fashion, primarily with children as parents would dress their kids in suits and away from skirted garments which were favored at the time.

Considered as the ultimate "rags to riches" story at the time, the book would receive several film adaptations from 1914-1995. The best known versions were the 1921 film starring Mary Pickford, a 1980 version starring Alec Guiness, Rick Schroder and Eric Porter but the best known adaptation is the 1936 film starring Freddie Bartholomew and Dolores Costello.

The film was directed by John Cromwell ("Of Human Bondage", "Since You Went Away", "Made For Each Other", "The Prisoner of Zenda") and a screenplay by Hugh Walpole ("David Copperfield", "Vanessa: Her Love Story", "Kind Lady") and the film would make Freddie Bartholomew as one of the most highly sought after child actors and also the second paid child actor after Shirley Temple. Which unfortunately, also became a double-edged sword for Bartholomew as the success of the film would lead to his long-estranged birth parents trying to gain custody and control of his fortune, a seven-year-battle which took a toll on Barthlomew and his career.

But despite the legal troubles and hardships that Bartholomew would experience after 1936, he will forever be remembered for his performance in the film "Lord Little Fauntleroy".

If you are like me, and really fond of this old gem, do yourself a favor and get this version. It is vast improvement on any other version I have seen, having been made from an original studio archival print, apparently. It is not perfect, but is close. There is some tiny sparkle in a few scenes, and one or two short damage places that should have been fixed. Far too many public domain versions have been released over the years that are pretty dismal in quality. Lots of talented performers in this film, and the camera work shows the care that was taken on many of the old black & white classics.

This story has been filmed several times through the centuries. Each brings with it the strengths and weaknesses of the time period in which it was made. A few examples are:
1914 - Gerald Royston - Cedric Erroll
1921 - Mary Pickford - Little Lord Fauntleroy/Dearest
1936 - Freddy Bartholomew - Cedric `Ceddie' Erroll
1976 - Glen Anderson - Lord Fauntleroy
1980 - Rick Schroder - Lord Fauntleroy (Ceddie Errol)
1995 - Michael Benz - Cedric Errol
2003 - Aleksei Vesyolkin - Cedric

As with any story, everyone has their favorite interpretation. This is a review of the 1936 version.

Ceddie (Freddy Bartholomew) is a well meaning kid, which is wise beyond his years and very well mannered. He lives alone with his mother Dearest (Dolores Costello Barrymore.) He is the product of his environment (America depression era) where he is mentored by a wise grocer (Guy Kibbee,) and befriended by others such as the shoe shine boy (Mickey Rooney.)

Turns out that he is the long lost grandson of the Earl of DorinCourt (C. Aubrey Smith,) and heir to an estate in England. So he is "Little Lord Fauntleroy." He is removed from the only home he knows and whisked off to England. There he does not realize that his grandfather can not stand his mother (they never met) so she has to stay in another house.

All is going swimmingly until the "Real Little Lord Fauntleroy" the son of the other brother shows up. Now what will happen? Is `Ceddie' destined to be second fiddle? Will his mother go back to America? What do his old friends think when they find out? Looks like curtains for everyone.

I had a few other DVD copies of this movie and the picture quality was very poor. This release, while not perfect, is much better and makes the movie far more enjoyable. Freddie Bartholomew is a marvelous child actor but his prime past quickly after he grew too tall to play child parts. Mickey Rooney has a relatively small, but important part and gives the story a good example of friendship. I've watched this movie several times and the cast and characters are top notch. If you like good old classics with that feel good ending, this is for you.

It has a very old and non complected story line. Something you will ever see again. The acting quality is superb. It will bring tears to your eyes. He also plays in another movie with Spenser Tracy called Captions Courageous which is also a great flick. If you like acting as an art (not for the money) take a look at this movie. It's one of the best.

This is what media should be used for. Watched it with the wife and all 6 boys. Wonderful, uplifting story about change and how good can change. Just a simple, friendly boy who changes hearts and minds by being himself and brings joy to others. Just get it.
