"...The cast is beyond reproach....There's a Walt Disney movie in town [and k]ids, take grandma."

Product Description:

Casey Brown (Jodie Foster), a street-wise L.A. kid, joins with a con man (Leo McKern) to cheat Lady St. Edmund (Helen Hayes) whom they believe possesses buried treasure. Casey poses the woman's long-lost granddaughter, but soon finds that life in the mansion isn't what she had expected. This film contains a notable performance by David Niven, who plays a number of characters, including the butler Mr. Priory.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Welcome to Candleshoe, a stately English manor where a swashbuckling pirate hid a fortune in Spanish doubloons centuries ago. And that's what young orphan Casey (Award-winning actress Jodie Foster) and a sly con man (David Niven) are determined to find. But first she must dupe Candleshoe's widowed owner into believing she's her long-lost granddaughter! Casey eventually discovers there may be an even greater treasure at Candleshoe -- the love of a happy family. Legendary stars David Niven and Helen Hayes join Foster in this humorous and heartwarming adventure presented for the first time in its original, uncut theatrical version!

Plot Synopsis:

A pair of con artists attempts to convince an English noblewoman that a Los Angeles tomboy is her long-lost granddaughter. Their ultimate goal is a cache of valuable coins hidden somewhere on the lady's Candleshoe estate, which is operated by Priory and the host of orphans under his supervision.
