When the DVD came, I was most pleased with the transfer. The picture is very clean and crisp and the audio portion is so superior that I am able to hear dialogue clearly which I had missed previously. Missing scenes? No. In fact, there are some small scenes in the DVD version which I had not seen before in the other versions I have viewed (for example, the dining room table scene with Ceddie and the Earl of Dorincourt).
All this aside, I love this movie for its portrayal of the redeeming power of love. My children benefit from watching it because Lord Fauntleroy is a powerful example of courage, respect and virtue. I have often wondered what it would be like to have a child without sin (only Jesus qualifies), but "Ceddie" as Little Lord Fauntleroy is perhaps the closest approximation to come from earthly minds. His mother, also, is a woman of admirable strength, wisdom and grace. Most inspiring.
I have no reservations recommending this film in DVD format.
If you never bothered to tape this wonderful film when it has played on TV, you might want to purchase this DVD, but if you already have it on tape, chances are that you already have a better copy than what you'll get on this DVD. Hopefully, someday before those of us left alive who truly appreciate this impeccably executed masterpiece of nostalgia pass from this earth, someone who genuinely cares about this film will do a careful and complete transfer of it to DVD.
I have found that frequently, among oldie films or controversial films, there is great variation in length of releases on DVD. The description on the case of THIS version says it is 100 minutes long, when in fact it is 102. Usually, the reverse holds. Sellers have no way of knowing the actual length of what they sell, when the case itself is incorrect.
One information site shows 11 versions of "Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936)" DVDs. It shows the correct running time for this version -- 102 minutes -- even though its own case does not. I have found errors in many sources of information, including Amazon.com, concerning DVDs. I am glad I found THIS version of THIS film, despite the errors of description!
