From the really excellent children’s book of the same name by Esther Forbes
A silversmith’s apprentice during the years leading up to the Declaration of Independence.
We were having the New Year’s Day Videofest. 2013: American History in Movies.
Ottersis picked this one, and it was fun. Originally it was two separate Wonderful World of Disney programs, and they have been stitched together into a short (about 70 minutes) feature filmish sort of thing. Very like all the other Disney historical stuff, but not badly written, fun to watch with a bit of msting, a good additon to the day.
