Very cool Wizard of Oz-esq effects and feel to certain elements.

The Raven (animal actor) was amazing!

Baby Dean Stockwell is very good as Colin.

Margaret O'Brien was adorable in 'Meet Me In St. Louis', but everything she did after that was sort of an awkward fit. However, the role of Mary Lennox is meant for an awkward looking little girl with a bratty attitude, basically it was meant for her to play.

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.

None of the remakes of this movie have compared to this original movie. I saw this when I was a young girl and can still watch it over and over again.

Great movie, i especially love the temper tantrum competition between Mary and Colin! best scene in the movie! I also had such a crush on Dickon when I was a child, I just thought him so sweet and handsome.
