Little Lord Fauntleroy
At a very early age an American boy named Cedric is told that he is the sole heir to a British earldom, and so leaves New York to take up residence in his ancestral castle, where, after some initial resistance, he is joined by his middle-class mother, ''Dearest'', the widow of the late heir. His grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt, intends to teach the boy to become an aristocrat, but Cedric inadvertently teaches his grandfather compassion and social justice, while the artless simplicity and motherly love of Dearest warms his heart.
It has a "happy-ever-after" ending, but with a soul as good as Cedric's, it's a fitting ending indeed.
