This film has become cult viewing amongst the students of Birmingham, England, with its quirky Disney humour, its cracking one-liners (they're nice and squashy! whats grandmother going to say when she finds out! better take the garlic! ) top performances, (why did Bobby never work again? ) and a storming soundtrack by the fantastic Ron Goodwin! Parties of students have been found wandering through the Warwickshire countryside on a pilgrimage to Compton Wynyates, aka Candleshoe!The walk was 26 miles in the rain but everyone agreed that it was definitely worth it!!!Candleshoe is quite possibly the best film ever made and Disney at its finest!!!!

The Synopsis for Candleshoe (1977) 1080p
Small-time crook Harry Bundage discovers that the old manor house where Lady St. Edmund resides, with three orphans and her butler Priory is the resting place for a hoard of treasure. Unfortunately, he doesn't know where it is. Bundage recruits urchin Casey Brown to dupe Lady St. Edmund into thinking that she is her long-lost granddaughter, so she can search for clues to the location of the treasure. Unbeknownst to Bundage AND her ladyship, Lady St. Edmund is flat broke, and Priory and the children help her ladyship try to keep her home and pride. Joined by Casey, they do all the chores and Priory acts as the butler, gardener, chauffeur and an old major all at the same time!

the best film EVER!!!Reviewed bybudsheldonVote: 10/10
One of the first movies I ever saw with Jodie Foster in it. It still is one of my favorites from her, and easily one of the best kids movies made, including the animated ones that are so prevalent today. Jodie's street wise girl going to London to pull a con at the force of Leo McKern's character, and her learning to love the family that she is to set up for a big fall was done in a less pandering fashion than you see in today's kids movies. Also outstanding was David Niven's performance as Priory the butler.
Another Disney classic, a definite for young children and a movie I would recommend for families.
The country setting helps this film along as it reinforces the atmosphere being an "old" age film, set in the past, but not to far back. The acting by Jodie Foster in this film is delightful to watch as the tomboy cliché is used but to great effect. Another brilliant performance is by David Niven, the butler, but who undergoes changes in his personality to acquire different identities as to accompany his mistress in disguise, giving her a sense of many friendships.
Any fight scenes are classically in Disney fashion, amusing and inventive defences and preceding this, even a car chase magnificently manoeuvred by Mr. Prairy the butler (Niven)and much to any child's delight.
A film guaranteed to be loved by young children and even appreciated by the open-minded of older years but without a doubt, a family film enjoyed by all the family, including the grandparents!!
