The Secret Garden (BBC) - 1974

To me, this film adaptation of the timeless book by Frances Hodgson Burnett stunk.   I usually love classic productions by the BBC but this I did not care for at all.  It was originally released as a television mini-series in 1974.  There are much better film adaptations of The Secret Garden.

I did not recognize much of a transformation in the main character (Mary Lennox) in this version. 

The only character that I loved and thought did a great job in this film is the bird.

LOL, I borrowed this from our library once and turned it off pretty soon enough because as you say it stunk!
