This is one of the little known Disney films, yet it's rife with the same charm and lovability that many of Disney's other films are. It's set in a quaint little town in Maine where a widow and her three children go to live after they lose their house in Boston due to bad investment advice from a relative. City folk meet country folk with a spoiled brat coming to live with them and a scheming daughter whose heart is in the right place. This is definitely a feel good film with catchy tunes and my favorite part, Tom Hamilton, who I wish they showed more of. Anyway, I highly recommend this film for people who are looking for films for their children or for anyone who loves classic Disney films. This film is hard to find I've found, but it's definitely worth the effort!

Excellent movie, if you liked Hayley Mills in PollyAnna, look no further. This movie exhibits family values and basic human kindness amid the traditional Disney music and humor. There's nothing wrong with some simplicity and optimism. Today we can use them. Burl Ives and Dorothy McGuire are absolutely wonderful. The story is endearing and the life lessons are timeless. This is a classic. Many thanks to the Hallmark Channel for bringing it to us. I don't recall seeing it when I was growing up, but at 45, its never to late to enjoy vintage Disney. Maybe today's Disney execs should review their history for future successes. I highly recommend it.
I really liked "Summer Magic". Maybe not as good as "Mother Carey's Chickens" but what I did like about the film was its good nature and how lovingly rendered it was. I mean, the cinematography, scenery and costumes are truly lovely. The music was another pleasant surprise, soothing and whimsical, with "Ugly Bug Ball" being a definite highlight as it reminded slightly of "Lavender Blue" from "So Dear to My Heart". The script was above average, the characters were like the epitome of innocence(think along the lines of Meet Me in St Louis) and the direction is cheerful. What stood out though were the performances. Hayley Mills mayn't have been at her very best, as she gave one of the best child performances ever in "Tiger Bay", but she is appropriately fresh-faced and sweet in the title role, and Dorthy McGuire was very nice as the mother. Burl Ives, who was absolutely brilliant in "Rudolph,The Red Nosed Reindeer" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" is perfect as the kindly caretaker Osh Popham. The film may be a little too long but essentially it is a very nice little film. 8/10 Bethany Cox
