(1971). Young brother and sister (Jack Wild and Helen Raye) escape the crushing rule of their stepfather (William Rushton) in gray Britain for their dear granny (Dorothy McGuire) in green Ireland. Learning that the children are heirs to a large fortune, menacing uncle (Ron Moody) pursues them, intending to dispose of them and claim the money for himself. Director Ralph Nelson, steering clear of the scary potential of the situation, produces a fancy, frothy entertainment package, stuffed with colorful set pieces, songs and sentimentality. The confection may be too sweet for adults, but young children will especially enjoy Moody’s magic tricks and bag of disguises. (A-I — general patronage) (G — general audiences) TCM (cable)
