–Comment: Ricky Schroder (pictured) in a short white/light blue striped sailor suit with very long, wide black scarf. Blue squared collar, 3 stripes. Black stockings.
Also other festive suits (dark blue with white, non sailor suit lace collar) and poor and sporting and riding clothings (breeches?) And also grown ups in historical cothing. This is my favorite movie at Christmas Time. Only 2 short sailor suit scenes. However very good, nearly perfect film and perfect plot (Primetime Emmy Award), touching scenes and very good acting of young Schroder (for Schroder also see entry “Too Young the Hero”, 1988 with him and other teens also in white sailor suits).
I saw some different DVD releases and some must be also officially. AUS DVD in enhanced widescreen or Italian (incl. English language) but I think without extras. So I don’t need them. There are also earlier and later films with the same title so watch out to get the right 1980 version. Also starring Alec Guinness, novel by Francis Hodgeson Burnett.
See also the 1936 b/w version starring Freddie Bartholomew and Mickey Rooney, rating 4. I will check the other version occasionally. Rating 8 “only” due to few sailor suit scenes. He is also very young and small.
