'Great Expectations' (1946) was directed by David Lean and was based on the great book by Charles Dickens. Some critics have labeled this as the best British film, the best film adapted from a novel, and even the best black and white film. It also featured an early performance from this then-seventeen-year-old actress, as the young, attractive yet icy and cruel Estella. Who was this fine 'Great Expectations' actress?
Pascal Lamorisse embodied innocence in this 34-minute French movie. The movie was so successful and so moving and heartwarming that it won the Cannes Golden Palm for Best Short Film of 1956 and the Academy Award for Best Screenplay. It was about a boy (Lamorisse) and his surprising clever balloon. Now for a question you might find peculiar: what was the color of that one balloon?
Patty Duke was the first minor to win an official acting Academy Award at sixteen years old. The movie was 'The Miracle Worker' (1962) and she co-starred with the versatile Anne Bancroft.

'Empire of the Sun' (1987) was just one of many of Steven Spielberg's epics.

Who was this actor, who would later establish himself as a serious thespian? (In his later years, he played a comic book superhero.)

Ivana Baquero was one of the few child actresses who could give a mature, authentic portrayal of a character, while still exemplifying innocence. This was shown in this Oscar-winning 2006 movie from Mexico. Her character's name was Ofelia. The setting was in 1940's Spain at the rise of Fascism. If I remember correctly, the plot had something to do with fairy tales and becoming a princess. There was a delicious array of mythical references, too. What was the American translation of this delightful Mexican movie with Baquero?
Children of Men
Bridge to Terabithia
