A superb fourth film version of the all-time favorite children's novel and the first in a series of movies based on literary classics put together by Frederick Brogger and James Franciscus (through their Omnibus Productions) and director Delbert Mann. "David Copperfield," "Jane Eyre" and the theatrical "Kidnapped" followed. Making her acting debut in the title role: the daughter of director Blake Edwards. This film always will occupy a place in television history as the program which preempted the final crucial minutes of an important (to sports fans, at least) football game causing not only switchboard havoc at the network but also several newspaper editorials about viewer priorities.
