More About Frances Hodgson Burnett

Frances Hodgson Burnett Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (24 November 1849 – 29 October 1924) was an English-American playwright and author. She is best known for her children's stories, in particular Little Lord Fauntleroy (published in 1885-6), A Little Princess (1905), and The Secret Garden (1911).

Frances Eliza Hodgson was born in Cheetham, near Manchester, England. After her father died in 1852, the family eventually fell on straitened circumstances and in 1865 emigrated to the United States, settling near Knoxville, Tennessee. There, Frances began writing to help earn money for the family, publishing stories in magazines from the age of 19. In 1870 her mother died and in 1872 she married Swan Burnett, who became a medical doctor after which they lived in Paris for two years where their two sons were born before returning to the US to live in Washington D.C. There she began to write novels, the first of which (That Lass o' Lowries), was published to good reviews. Little Lord Fauntleroy was published in 1886 and made her a popular writer of children's fiction, although her romantic adult novels written in the 1890s were also popular. She wrote and helped to produce stage versions of Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess.

Burnett enjoyed socializing and lived a lavish lifestyle. Beginning in the 1880s, she began to travel to England frequently and bought a home there in the 1890s where she wrote The Secret Garden. Her oldest son, Lionel, died of tuberculosis in 1892, which caused a relapse of the depression she struggled with for much of her life. She divorced Swan Burnett in 1898 and married Stephen Townsend in 1900, and divorced him in 1902. Towards the end of her life she settled in Long Island, where she died in 1924 and is buried in Roslyn Cemetery, on Long Island.

In 1936 a memorial sculpture by Bessie Potter Vonnoh was erected in her honour in Central Park's Conservatory Garden. The statue depicts her two famous Secret Garden characters, Mary and Dickon.

Frances Hodgson Burnett lived in Manchester. Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in 1849 and died in 1924.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great version of the story  Feb 11, 2008
I also loved the movie when I was a kid, but back then it was more difficult to get copies of the movie unless you recorded it on your VCR at home when it came on TV.

I enjoy this one much more than the more recently made movie. More drama, more story shared, before, during and after. The characters have much more depth and really shows much more the variation of the changes to each person as Mary changes.

We just watched it yesterday and the music is excellent and the scenery and location was superb. Perhaps not a movies for very young children but any around 10-11 on up could handle the drama of it...

My niece had not seen this version and she liked it much more and was more scared around that big old castle when Mary walked around in it at night searching for the mysterious source of what she heard.
Watch the 1993 version instead...  Jun 30, 2007
These Hallmark films bore me to tears. They are far from exciting, let alone interesting. Nothing more than a long talk-a-thon with very little going on. The music is not so great either. Watch the 1993 version instead. It's the best one. You can find it here: The Secret Garden
book or film review?  Jan 18, 2007
this site's reviewing system isn't working for this BOOK - most of the reviews seem to be for a film version - and one that is not in keeping with the book at all, as well.

Anyway, MY review is for the BOOK. I wish I had discovered it as a child. Or at least in time to read it to my own children.

A message to all of those who worry about 'Pagan' content in children's books: forget Harry Potter and the Wizard of Oz - everybody recognizes those as fantasies. The Secret Garden is the Real Thing, rich with Earth Magic and wonder, with its own Puck in the gentler form of Dickon, and its own Wise Woman - Dickon's mother, who trusts in the healing power of nature.

No one hops on a broom here, or waves a wand; the magic is real.
A better release  Jan 3, 2007
Having read the slim story and seeing all film versions, I am inclined to think this the best.
It is not in the least important how the childhood characters did not look like the adult characters. In theater and film you are bound by constraints. Are you going to make the film or wait for some future incarnation of the child lead who would appear to be the same as an adult? Nope.
Gennie James came across as a spoiled and petulant child. Her performance made me look away at times and grind my teeth. Barret Oliver was magical. As a charming and sad child he gave the strong impression of being prescient. This sets things up for the inevitable longing and sorrow that follows.
We dismiss the emotions of childhood because we believe that they cannot compare to our own vast warehouse of sadness and dreams lost. This film perhaps can correct this misperception.
The Best Version  Nov 25, 2006
When this version of The Secret Garden movie came out I was only 7 years old at the time, but had already read the book. I am now 25 years old and the book and this version of the movie is my favorite. I would have to say that the boy that is playing Colin is a little difficult to handle watching at times, while Barret Oliver who plays Dickon is a wonder to watch, it was to bad he didn't receive that many more movie offers after this one. I agree with some that the ending with Mary and Colin in the garden is not like it ended in the book, but it also put's a finishing touch on a very moving story. While the girl that they hired to play the grown up Mary doesn't look much like the child, look for Colin Firth in a small but wonderful role as the grown up Colin. I also agree that it is to bad that they felt the need to kill Dickon off, but if you happen to watch the movie The Return to the Secret Garden, than you get a little of that back story in that movie. I would recommend this movie to any one who has ever read the book. While not a true image to the screen of the book, it's still a good one to watch.
