Freddie Bartholomew

The first film I ever saw FREDDIE BARTHOLOMEW (1924-1992) in was David Copperfield. I loved him. I enjoyed seeing a wonderfully sweet boy. Born Frederick Llewellyn March, Freddie has played everything from the perfect child to the spoiled rich brat.

Captains Courageous (1937)Haven't you seen Captains Courageous (1937)? This was a more recent discovery of mine and a wonderful movie. See this film to see both Freddie Bartholomew and Spencer Tracy. They are a great team.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

David Copperfield (1935) I'll never forget the long walk David Copperfield takes in this film. It's a great movie.
Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936) This is one of my favorite Frances Hodgson Burnett stories.
Kidnapped (1938) This is a very good Robert Louis Stevenson story.
Tom Brown's School Days (1940) I'll never forget seeing this one as a kid. I thought about it for weeks.
