This looks very interesting and I love the subject material.
Definite blind-buy.
Thanks again @paulboland ! :thanks:

edit: I remember now what this reminded me of, seems to be a kid friendly version of "The Innocents", heh, a very much loved film.

Ever heard of this film, is it any good and a Christmas movie?
i actually saw this for the first time on tv over Christmas. it's not a really a Christmas film - the first scenes are around then, but then that's forgotten. i thought it had some adventurous and complex ideas for a kids film of that era (it reminded me of The Railway Children and is the same director), but the execution didn't quite work - for me, at least. i love older films as much as latest releases, but this wasn't one for me to rewatch.

that said, this looks like an excellent package, and the version on tv had missing frames and was poor resolution, so definitely in need of this restoration, so props to Second Sight for doing so :thumbs:
