'Zabladowski' I'm intrigued as to who Alexsei Veselkin is. I've never heard of him. It sounds like he's Russian though I doubt such a country would want to make a film like 'Little Lord Fauntleroy'! Smiley
Do you know of the BBC TV series of 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' made in 1994 and starring Michael Benz as Ceddie?
Considering the family info you gave on a relatively obscure boy actor like Tommy Bupp it looks as though this site is going to be very good for info I might want to know in the future. Smiley
I had to go to the USA to obtain my DVD of Bobby Breen. Some outfit called Roan Group Archival Entertainment sent it to me.

As surprising as it might be, there is a Russian version of Little Lord Fauntleroy. It's listed in our database:



There's also a Russian version of Tom Sawyer, which I think is even weirder:



I haven't seen either.

You guys would be amazed at what Western stories the Russians have remade. In addition to the Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn film joseph mentioned there is a Russian version of Peter Pan and Mary Poppins as well! I have only personally seen Little Lord Fauntleroy however and can tell you that it is a very faithful recreation of the story - save for everyone speaking Russian of course....

I have seen all of the non-silent English language releases of this story apart from the 1976 BBC version and the 1982 NBC version. The Michael Benz version while good (the story is too good to really do a horrendous version, right?) does not stand up to the other versions I've mentioned.

I agree, 'Zabladowski', it's difficult to make a horrendous version of 'Little Lord Fauntleroy'. What intrigues me, however, is how Frances Hodgson Burnett's story ever got past the printers!
Published in 1886, there were hundreds of these children's stories around in those days all full of sentimentality and religious based moralising. A sickly-sweet character like Cedric Erroll in a quite sentimental plot should have died the death at its first print. Somehow her story caught on and became very popular like Anna Sewell's 'Black Beauty'.
Yet I love the story of 'Little Lord Fauntleroy' and thought the Michael Benz version was very good. Of course, the 1936 film with Freddie Bartholomew was made-to-measure for that splendid all-English boy actor. I liked the way he would sit in an armchair with one leg folded under the other, a typical Victorian child's pose.

SmileyFor the young actors playing in the  movies released in France this year and which saw, I hesitate because they are all a very good play, between  Kodi SMIT-McPHEE in The Road, Max BAISSETTE DE MALGLAIVE in L'immortel and Eros VLAHOS in Nanny McPHEE and the Big Bang.

It looks like I left off in 2008, so...

2009 Filip Garbacz wins my vote for Swinki over Amir in Oscar et la dame rose, Jonas Hämmerle in Wickie und die starken Männer, John Bell in A Shine of Rainbows, Max Records in Where The Wild Things Are  and Jacob Ottensten in Lars og Peter

2010 I am torn between Ask von der Hagen in Keeper'n til Liverpool and Robbie Kay in Ways to Live Forever. Also worth mentioning in that year were William Jøhnk Nielsen in Hævnen, Nikolaj Støvring Hansen in Min bedste fjende and Christian Martyn in Snowmen.

2011 My winner would be Émilien Néron in Monsieur Lazhar. I also considered Thomas Horn in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close and Zacharie Chasseriaud in Les geants. Marcos Ruiz impressed me in a supporting role in Primos.
