This drama is the second of five screen adaptations of the classic 1911 novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett, a novel first published after serialization in The American Magazine. The film includes one very good stock shot of an ex-GWR 2301 Class ‘Dean Goods’ 0-6-0 on a short passenger train.
