The Secret Garden Reviews
The Raven (animal actor) was amazing!
Baby Dean Stockwell is very good as Colin.
This was one of my favorite books when I was a child and this is a very faithful adaptation. It may be a bit short and thus we don't get a completely accurate look at Mary's transformation, but the film overall is a charming story of resentment, guilt and the change that needs to come.
The only part that really frustrates me is the blantant ripping off of 'The Wizard of Oz' with the black and white to colour transformation. If you are going to copy another film, maybe it shouldn't be so blatant and maybe it shouldn't be one of the best films ever made.
