| Delightful fantasy!
My children & I got to see it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Katherine Hepburn is marvelous, and the two kids are wonderful.

The scenes with the hot-air balloon are really fun to watch. The relationship between Ms. Hepburn's relationship with the young boys is touching as it grows.

The scenes over and in the Hollywood Bowl are great... I enjoyed the way the scenes were shot and staged.

My children, (boy & girl), loved the old car that Ms. Hepbrun drove, as well as the old English Sheepdog that was the boys' companion.

To top it off, the film boasts of a great music score!
