    Nice little Disney film. Not much story to speak of and it can get pretty damn slow paced and lugubrious, what with the maudlin deathbed scene involving Will Geer, followed by ANOTHER death bed scene when the kid discovers his dead body, and that musical score practically ordering us to take out our hankies, but all in all I've seen a lot worse from the mouse. What elevates it from the usual sentimental crap, in my opinion, is the quality of the acting. Don't think there was a bad performance in the cast. And the two kid actors, Johnny Whitaker and Jodie Foster (in her first role), were especially good. And of course whenever kid actors deliver good performances you always feel inclined to credit the director, in this case Bernard McEveety. Kinda makes up for his slow as a beer truck pacing in the first half. And also per usual in a Disney film the location shooting (in this case central Oregon) is first class all the way. So let's give it a solid B. P.S. You gotta believe if this film had been made ten years earlier, when right wing Uncle Walt was still kicking, that the fine actor and noted leftie Will Geer would not have played Grandpa. Probably would have been stuck with Burl Ives.

    Napoleon is so romantic and is so cute the scene where he gives reghan one of his chickens and reghan says oh Napoleon you shouldn't have I love him that scene is so romantic.
