A Little Princess

Set in Victorian England, the story tells of Sara Crewe, a gifted and well-mannered child who is treated -- albeit begrudgingly, like "a little princess" by her boarding school mistress. All that changes when her father, Captain Crewe, dies penniless in India. Reduced in status to that of a beggar and a drudge, Sara not only manages to survive but also helps two of her friends through hard times as well. Lending their support are a pet monkey, an Indian lascar and an ailing gentleman who lives next-door to the school. This story is based on Frances ("The Secret Garden") Hodgson Burnett's classic children's book. It is also a remake of the 1939 Walter Lang feature starring Shirley Temple.
