“But only be good, dear, only be brave, only be kind and true always, and then you will never hurt anyone, so long as you live, and you may help many, and the big world may be better because my little child was born…”
Little Lord Fauntleroy is, along with The Secret Garden, one of the greatest children’s stories of all time.
In a rundown New York tenement in the mid-1880s, young Cedric Errol lives with his mother in poverty after the death of his father, Captain Cedric Errol.
One day, an English lawyer visits them with a vital message from Cedric's grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt.
With the deaths of his father's elder brothers, little Cedric has now inherited the title of Lord Fauntleroy and is the rightful heir to the earldom and a vast estate.
What happens next is…pure magic!
