Little Lord Fauntleroy

Young Cedric and his widowed mother, "Dearest," live in the slums of 1880s New York. Although small in stature, Cedric's fierce battles as he defends himself against the neighborhood bullies are local legend. Poor but respectable, the family's fortunes change when the elderly Earl of Dorincourt commissions the solicitor Haversham to bring his rightful heir, Cedric, back to England. The Earl welcomes Cedric but exiles Dearest to a cottage outside the manor, unjustly accusing her of marrying the Earl's son for the money. Cedric must conquer the Earl's hardened heart while confronting an unexpected claimant to the title.

Playing both Cedric (inspired by her brother Jack's joy of mischief and her husband Douglas Fairbanks' swagger) and his mother, the gentle and beautiful Dearest, Pickford exhibits her remarkable range as an actress. Also on display is the enormous talent of cameraman Charles Rosher (Sunrise) who created all the double exposure shots in which mother and son appear in the same scene.

A highly influential film in its day (including Buster Keaton's Our Hospitality), LITTLE LORD FAUNTLEROY remains an extraordinarily entertaining and fascinating look at old New York and the English aristocracy.
