Figure 1.--This is a scene from the silent "Little Lord Fauntleroy film produced in 1926 with Mary Pickford playing the lead tole.
Mrs. Burnett taking advantage of the success of her book launched into
theatrical productions which proved to be enormously successful. After the turn
of the century, movie productions appeared. The first was in the 1920s, but
there have been many subsequent productions.
Following up on the success of her book in 1886, Mrs. Burnett immediately
began to produce a stage production which proved enormously successful in
London and Paris as well as elsewhere in Europe. The boys went with her to
Europe and were erolled in schools there. She was soon involved in law suits
against unauthorized productions. The costuming in these plays involved very
elaborate, frilly Fauntleroy suits and ringlet curls.
