Perhaps a little saccharin compared to today's movies (thank God!), Heidi still has a powerful storyline. Combining rich dialogue with beautiful scenery, this movie even includes a sleigh-chase scene! I must also mention that this movie includes Arthur Treacher (playing Andrews the Butler), one of my personal favorites.
This movie is such a wonderful echo from another time. I must say that I doubt that the Hollywood of today could produce such an uplifting story, full of wonderful values. I have two children (7 and 10), and this was a great movie to watch with them, having nothing objectionable--in fact quite to the contrary. So, if you have children, then I can't recommend this movie enough!
Shirley Temple one of the most famous child actors of all time acts as the uneducated Heidi and this film fails to tell the full story as Heidi in the books and future films return to the mountains and Carla learns to walk if you like Temple then this film may have enough for you to make you watch but if you want the whole story the latest version if a much better choice so it really comes down who do you want Temple or Heidi.
The latest Heidi is the only version which sticks to the book more closely than the other film and version there has been even a TV series made the mistake of use the Temple film as a their guide so look for the latest version and buy it you will get the story you want I promise .
