It was widely noted (particularly by Dick Van Dyke) that whilst Ken Hughes was a talented 'action' director he was not good at directing actors , especially children. Consequently, it fell to Van Dyke, Sally Ann Howes and members of the crew to entertain the children and guide them through their performances. See more »
When Truly first arrives with the children at their house, she wears a hat. In some shots there are tissues stuffed in the ruffles and in others they have been removed. See more »
Surprised folks wouldn't like this delightful film!
It surprises me that some people think this is a horrible film. I was 3 when this film was released and for as long as I can remember I've loved it! The songs are fun, especially Hushabye Mountian, Chu-chi Face and Me Ole Bamboo. This movie is both light, cheery as well as dark and creepy, the Child Catcher to this day is one of the scariest villians I know! And know it is a fabulous musical in London! Hopefully someday it will come to Broadway, I'd love to see it on stage!.
