Storyline

Small-time crook Harry Bundage discovers that the old manor house where Lady St. Edmund resides, with three orphans and her butler Priory is the resting place for a hoard of treasure. Unfortunately, he doesn't know where it is. Bundage recruits urchin Casey Brown to dupe Lady St. Edmund into thinking that she is her long-lost granddaughter, so she can search for clues to the location of the treasure. Unbeknownst to Bundage AND her ladyship, Lady St. Edmund is flat broke, and Priory and the children help her ladyship try to keep her home and pride. Joined by Casey, they do all the chores and Priory acts as the butler, gardener, chauffeur and an old major all at the same time! Written by David A Sparling <d.a.sparling@bradford.ac.uk>

Goofs

When Priory, Lady St.Edmond and the kids arrive at the station and find the train leaving, Peter states that it's the last stop before London. This would not be possible as in 1977 (The date on the for sale notice at Candleshoe) trains to London would not be steam hauled, they would be high speed electric trains, steam had not been used on mainlines in Britain for over a decade.

Quotes

Lady St. Edmund: I don't suppose your experience with family life has been a happy one.
Casey Brown: What family life? Tell ya, the only thing i remember about family life is nothing. Zero. One foster dump to another. I mean who really cares about a kid you take in just for the welfare money and the food stamps? I mean who really cares? It's a racket, just like anything else. The whole world's a racket. First thing i ever learned. you get up out of bed in the morning with your dukes up. You got 'em up, first punch is yours.

A great family film
28 January 2007 | by young_for_eternity_0071See all my reviews

Possibly one of the best family films ever made by Disney. Jodie Foster is brilliant as the wayward teen who's going nowhere. Even at that early age you can see why she has gone on to become one of Hollywoods most successful actresses - she's definitely underrated.

Candleshoe is packed full of memorable one liners that just stick with you for months, even years, following watching this film.

I grew up watching it and have never stopped! Also, 'Grandmother's' accent is perfect, considering the actress herself is American.

Watch this film, you won't be disappointed!

Unfortunately I had to surf the Net and order it from America to get hold of my copy, but if you DO find it to buy, don't hesitate.
