Did You Know?


Early script drafts of film (from the 1960s) briefly modeled production as a musical. This idea was later scrapped after the box office and critical failure of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968). See more »


Although the house is extremely derelict and overgrown and supposedly no one goes near it the lawns are neatly trimmed. See more »

Crazy Credits

The closing credits feature many of the characters waving goodbye to the audience, with an associated caption showing each actor's name. However the character names are never shown in the opening or closing credits. Only the very minor characters are given a conventional "actor / character" credit. See more »

This is a Wonderful Fantasy Movie that the Entire Family can Enjoy!!
26 November 2005 | by kjr2374See all my reviews

This movie is a classic fantasy film about two children who travel back in time to save the lives of two children who died in a fire 100 years ago. Two siblings, Lucy and Jamie, get the shock of their lives when they encounter the ghosts of two children in the garden of the home there mother is overseeing. Sara and Georgie are two young ghosts that died in a fire at the house nearly 100 years ago. They desperately need help and cannot find it in their own time so they find a recipe that enables them to travel back in time. They ask Lucy and Jamie to make the potion in order to travel to their time to help save their lives. This movie is also nice because it has an interesting plot twist at the end and it is also one of the few movies in which you get to see Diana Dors act instead of just look nice. It is a thrilling movie but out of print and hard to find. I highly recommend it.
