Frances Hodgson Burnett's famous story follows a New York street urchin (Freddie Bartholomew) who finds out he is the heir to a fortune and a British title...and must travel to Victorian England to claim them. In addition to figuring out how to leverage his new wealth, little Lord Fauntleroy must try to smooth over the rocky relations between his American mother (Dolores Costello) and his uncle (C. Aubrey Smith)─who controls the family trust. Mickey Rooney, Guy Kibbee, E.E. Clive co-star. 102 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
