Movie Info

The British made-for-TV production The Box of Delights begins during the Christmas season, when young Devin Stanfield returns home from boarding school. No sooner has he arrived than Stanfield has made the acquaintance of elderly eccentric Patrick Troughton, who entrusts the boy with a mysterious box. Whatever magical powers the box possesses are coveted by evil Robert Stephens, who'll stop at nothing -- including kidnapping -- to get what he wants. The story comes to a rousing finale when Stephens plans "one last great wickedness" to claim the box for himself. The Box of Delights was first telecast in the U.S. as a three-part presentation (December 10, 17, and 24, 1984) on PBS' Wonderworks series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
