Review by Danny Lewis (posted on 13-Apr-2008)
Hayley Mills at her best as a precocious teen living with her gramdmother on a plantation where flowers do not grow.(A symbolism to life). Hayley gives an outstanding performance as a loveless child who feels left out of her mothers life with a knack for causing trouble, acting out, and solving mysteries. The late Deborah Kerr plays the governess hired to look after Hayley with a secret that Hayley discovers and soon regrets. John Mills plays the loving butler who plays Dr. Watson to Hayley's Sherlock Holmes. This movie has it all. I own it on VHS and wish it would come out on widescreen DVD. This is a movie you won't forget with outstanding cast performances.
