"The Little Kidnappers" Is Released
The Little Kidnappers, billed as The Kidnappers in the UK, is a 1953 British film, directed by Philip Leacock and written by Neil Paterson.
Two young boys living with their stern grandfather are not allowed to have a dog. Then they find an abandoned baby.
In this charming 1954 feature, Harry and Davy are two orphans living with their grandparents in Nova Scotia. Their autocratic grandfather gives them a "spare the rod spoil the child" kind of upbringing. All the boys really want is a dog, all the other kids have them, but their grandfather won't let them have one. As luck would have it, the boys find a baby orphaned as they are, and decide to hide it. They then must conceal it from their grandfather while discovering the love that was missing from their lives. ~ Brian Whitener, All Movie Guide
