Reviews

More of a follow-up to 'Song of the South', Disney's adaptation of the novel by Sterling North uses many of the same cast and a similar mix of live action and animation. Set in 1903 the film follows the story of Jeremiah and his dream to win first prize in a local pet contest with his pet sheep Danny. But things conspire against him, notably his grandmother who believes he is entering the contest for the wrong reasons. However, after Danny is lost and then found, Jeremiah's grandmother relents; but despite not winning the contest Jeremiah and his family realise an important lesson in life.

Format: DVD
We see an old scrapbook as the narrator recalls that the summer of 1903 was a special one for him and is still dear to his heart. Then the story begins and we meet young Jerry who lives on the farm with his tough but loving Granny. A newborn black lamb has been rejected by its mother and Jerry convinces Granny to let him raise it, against her better judgment. And even though Danny the lamb is a lot of trouble, Jerry still dreams of taking Danny to the County Fair.

This Disney tale of childhood innocence is very simple; there are no tragedies on the road to a happy ending, just an amazingly cute little boy and his ornery lamb. As Jerry, Bobby Driscoll didn't have to do anything for me to fall in love with him (although he's a very good actor!); just one look at that beautiful face was enough to send me reaching for the tissues. Beulah Bondi is perfect as his crotchety Granny and a young Burl Ives add country charm and good singin' as his Uncle Hiram. The lamb really doesn't have much personality and doesn't do much (and in fact, looks suspiciously like a white lamb with a dye job), but that's okay; it's all about sweet nostalgia and looking back at a simpler, happier time.

There are several animated interludes where the animals in Jerry's scrapbook come to life and sing songs of wisdom and encouragement. It's all done very well and even if it's too unsophisticated for today's kids, their parents and grandparents will surely love this 1948 gem.

Format: DVD
Released a few years after Song of the South, this 1948 classic Disney feature film has a number of UK DVD exclusives. It is indeed available in the US on DVD if you're a member of the Disney Movie Club, but that DVD has no special features. In addition to the film being presented in it's original 1.33:1 aspect ratio and Dolby Digital 5.1, this UK DVD also includes an introduction by Walt Disney, Lost and Found: Rare Footage, Scrapbook and Film Facts. Looking to know which is the best DVD version of So Dear To My Heart to get?- this is it!

All that I can add to the other reviewers comments is that this is one of the very first films I ever saw. That would be on it's first release and It's taken 60 years to catch up with it! BUT the wait was worth it. 'delightful', 'heart-warming' are adjectives usually used about Disney and this film is no exception. Not as well known as other features by the studio, it nevertheless is a worthy addition to the family-film collection.

Format: DVD
Jerry is a boy growing up on a farm back in the times of "Grundy's General Store" and everyone getting excited when the train comes through town. One calm night, the now-born baby lambs came into the world. They were all healthy little things, but one had black wool instead of white. Jerry, seeing this pathetic little thing, had some sort of connection with it, and loved it from the start. However, Granny didn't aprove of this situation, for she knew that it wouldn't earn it's keep, and it would eventually become a pet. But Jerry was persistant, and he won. After getting some advice from the wise old owl, Danny, (that's what Jerry named the lamb), progressed into a fine sheep, who often got into mischief. Granny was stubborn about selling Danny, but... but... well, maybe you should see the movie for yourself.

I love this film well done Disney it's a winner with me and my whole family. we may need another cassett on standby when the tape wears out. It's got good morals, clean wholesome fun, with a colourful illistration of how young children used to be. It's also a good educational tool.

I got this for my mum as a gift and she loves it. A tad of nostalgic fun for all and the grandkids get to enjoy it as well.

A charming tale from Disney as he sough to enlarge his studios output with live action films, there is a small amount of animation but it is used sparingly and only within the daydream sequences of young Jeremiah as he desperately tries to turn a black lamb into a prize winner despite his granny objecting half-heartedly.

It is a slight tale but despite the 1900 setting it should still entertain and captivate its target audience as it did this forty something man so well.
