"Little Lord Fauntleroy" is a nice old-fashioned comedy-drama, starring Mary Pickford in a double role. The star of Silent Hall of Fame Joe Roberts makes a cameo appearance as Buzz Saw Brannigan, an ex-champion and the idol of the neighborhood.
A boy named Cedric (played by Mary Pickford) lives with his widowed mother (also played by Mary Pickford). By a trick of circumstance he becomes the legal heir to an English nobleman. Cedric meets his grumpy old grandfather, who lives in a big cold castle and is estranged to him and his mother. Will Cedric's spirit of youth be able to melt the old man's heart and make him reconsider his life priorities?
The film enjoys a very nice rating in IMDB.
