Product Description

Germany released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), German ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: 2-DVD Set, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: ***ATTENTION***Each episode contains English audio, except short reviews of previous episodes that are in German***Suddenly, into the poor but happy lower-class Manhattan home of the widow Errol and her son Cedric, aged about 9, comes an agent from Cedric's mysterious grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, asking them to move to England so that Cedric can learn aristocratic ways and inherit the vast estate. Cedric's mother consents with misgivings, especially for having to live in a house nearby rather than in the castle with her son. The Earl proves to be a penurious misanthrope, hated by almost everyone who knows him. But from the beginning, Cedric sees only good in him, can't imagine that he would ever treat his tenants and villagers poorly, and wins their hearts with kindnesses, giving all credit to his grandfather's wishes. Soon the dour old man finds that he loves this cheerful little boy so dearly that he wants to live up to this new image of himself. The sudden appearance of a vulgar, ambitious American claiming that her son is the true heir to the title is a more grievous blow to him than anyone would have thought possible. ...Little Lord Fauntleroy - 2-DVD Set

I have owned this BBC production on VHS for a long time and had been waiting to see its release on DVD, but enquiries with the BBC in London confirmed that it had been deleted from their list and would not be released in region 2. However BBC America did not delete it and released it on DVD to the delight of many of us.

What can one say about this highly emotional and heart rending account of the Little Lord Fauntleroy -Cedric and his grandfather Lord Dorincourt, based on the novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This BBC production won the International Emmy awards in 1995 for best children's programme.

Plucked from poverty stricken 1879 New York, kind and compassionate Cedric Errol (Michael Benz), is summoned by his grandfather Lord Dorincourt (George Baker) to live in England as Lord Fauntleroy, the future Earl of Dorincourt, even though Lord Dorincourt refused to forgive and acknowledge Cedric's mother. How this pure and innocent loving boy, (well brought up by his mother), draws out and tames the reclusive and hard hearted Lord Dorincourt is beautifully dramatised, in this feature length (171) BBC mini-series, capturing the political mood of the time and the position of women in society then.

If you love good heart-warming drama or a fan of BBC period and costume drama, here is one for your shelf. Trust me when I say it is money well spent

Wow - what a delightful drama, funny and well acted by all. Such was my delight that instead of watching one episode a day, I watched all of them over one evening. While the Alec Guinness version of the 1980s is considered the definitve interpretation, I actually preferred this as it is longer so the drama unfolds at a slightly slower pace and in more depth. Julian Fellowes, the adapter of this version, is the creator of Downton Abbey and he naturally adds his own embellishments which I personally enjoyed as I felt they illuminated the plot and characters, although purists might not. The boy who plays Fountelroy is older than in the novel and his shoeshine friend is much younger which irked me a little but not enough to mar my enjoyment of the play. The only thing I'd add that it seemed a little mean to the other boy who appears near the end (don't want to ruin the plot for those who don't know it) as he is contrasted with Fountelroy by being fat, dark haired, not very likeable and incredibly plain - just felt abit cruel for the child actor, but all good fun to watch. You will need to change the subtitles to English as well.

I bought this because we used to have it on video. Unfortunately, the German DVD which was supposed to be heard also in English, was impossible to negotiate. We don't understand German, and spent a great deal of time trying to view the English version. We clicked on the English, and it always plays in German unless we skip the 1st two chapters of each part. Very frustrating.

this is by far the best production of little lord fantleroy, as i own the other two productions the quality of the tape is a bit grainy but considering it was from around 1995 i cannot complain, i just wish the BBC would bring it out on DVD as eventually video players will be a thing of the past, with the age of costume drama's upon us perhaps the should dig this one out of the cellar, umberto

This was better than I remember it from seeing it on TV many years ago - not nearly as mawkishly sentimental as I thought it might have been. I must admit that my sons, now in their twenties, thought that the German voice track was pretty funny - not that they speak German at all. On the other hand two German exchange students we had staying with us appreciated it.

It sounded like the best idea as there is not an English copy on the market, but it only plays the first episode in English and then reverts to German, no matter how many times you try. Also, although there is a clear copy on YouTube, this DVD ghosts rather like a bad video tape. So, if you cannot follow German and want a crystal clear picture, its best to avoid this DVD.

The quality of the dvd was fine and very enjoyable. The only drawback was that it was a German production and the main language was German which I didn't realise when I ordered it. However there was the choice of German or English for each episode. The blurb on the back of the dvd was in German though.
