Customer Reviews

Must be very old copy; unable to watch due to poor playing-ability.
P. Searle
Moreover, many of the aspects of Jo's situations are changed in ridiculous ways, such as putting their occupancy of the school at risk as a plot device.
Robert J. Crawford
I think someone should completely remake the movie, and actually make it at least the tiniest bit like the book!

Little Men is my favorite book in the world. I was expecting this movie to be cute and sweet just like the book. But instead, I was very very very dissapointed. It was as if they said, "Let's make a movie based on the book 'Little Men'!" and then created their very own story, almost completely different from the book. First of all, they barely even introduced the kids. Second, Dan was supposed to be an orphan, not an adopted kid who was overly attached to his "father" and was sent to Plumfield because the "father" was being bugged to put him in a school. Most of the movie was about a plot that wasn't even in the book!!! How awful can you get? I think someone should completely remake the movie, and actually make it at least the tiniest bit like the book! Right when the movie started, I was dissapointed, but I gave it a fair chace and watched the rest of the movie, but it was TERRIBLE!!! It was hardly recognizable as 'Little Men' except for the names...that was it!!!

Unfortunately, I got this for my daughter, who is reading virtually all of the classic kids books. We were barely 30 seconds into this when she became angry at how far the film is from the book, making it into a kind of idiotic comedy rather than the subtle social commentary from the original, adding characters not in the book, etc. Moreover, many of the aspects of Jo's situations are changed in ridiculous ways, such as putting their occupancy of the school at risk as a plot device. Also, this film makes a horrible mash of the characters, such as Jo's husband, who comes off as a naive buffoon.

This is a perfectly awful version that betrays the book's depth for comedy effects. Not recommended.

Major Burdle (played by George Bancroft) was making a comfortable living off a cute swindle when bank robber pal William Denning (played by famous comedian Jack Oakie) shows up and passes along the infant son of another crook. Unable to give the baby to an orphanage, Major Burdle raises renamed Dan 'Burdle' (played by 17-year old Jimmy Lydon) to be an assistant, huckstering a quack drunkeness cure. The authorities want the child in a school; so Major Burdle sends Dan to the Plumfield School, a progressive, private farm school. The Major himself impresses the school owners so much they give him the endowment fund to manage. Dan starts out resistant and hostile. The Major and Denning go off to swindle some more. Then bad things happen, and the movie comes to a suitiable mixed- happy conclusion, with the swindlers showing some character.

The film is in black and white from 1940. Alpha Vidio's picture and sound are clean enough. The best part of the film come from the comic touches of Jack Oakie, with George Bancroft also being amusing. The other characters are not memorable.

There are a couple of schoolyard fight scenes and no sex scenes. Other than Dan in a bathtub, suds to the waist, begging not to be sent away to school, there are no skin shots.

The only extra is the Alpha Video catalogue.

There are three entirely different movies by the same title, "Little Men", and a TV-series.
Amazon has commingled the reviews of the two entirely different, older, black & white movies.
One movie stars: Ralph Morgan & Frankie Darro.
The different movie story, which I review, stars: Jimmy Lydon & Jack Oakie.
The negative reviews are only because the movie starring Jimmy Lydon is a completely different story than the book by Louisa May Alcott. Yet, if you know that, and thus, are not feeling misled and deceived; it is a good movie. Ironically, it is about a swindler.

The school is quaint, on a farm. The story revolves around the boy's father, who is a struggling, charming, swindler; searching for new schemes with his partner. His son (Jimmy Lydon) is sent to boarding-school, and becomes embarrassed by his father's career. The school is struggling financially; the boy is struggling to fit in; the father is struggling.

It is not a great movie, but I enjoyed it. There is some humor and charm. It keeps your interest.

(Amazon's "Instant-Video" link takes you to a different movie by the same name with a different story, and different actors.)

A good deal, at the cost of a movie-rental.

The father advertises in the newspaper: "Send $3 and receive a fine quality portrait of President Washington, by a professional artist with exquisite detail".

See the "comment" button below for my review of the other movie by the same title starring Ralph Morgan and Frankie Darro.

Completely different story than the book by Louisa May Alcott.

It is not a great movie, but I enjoyed it. The school is quaint, on a farm. The story is really about a boy's father, a struggling and charming swindler, in the likes of Long John Silver, searching for new schemes to swindle money. His son, who goes off to school, is a bit embarrassed by his father's career. Nothing exceptional, but pleasant, and keeps your interest.
