We Won’t be Beaten, and We Won’t be Eaten!
Eddie Albert is Pod Clock, Tammy Grimes is his wife Homily, and Karen Pearson is daughter Arrietty . . . They seem to be a normal family living in England . . . and they are a good family . . . except . . . they are only a couple of inches tall, and they live in the base of the Grandfather Clock in the big British home of Aunt Sophy, played by Dame Judith Anderson.
Father Pod Clock sneaks out of their home every day and borrows the things that his family needs from the big house when no one is looking. Old Aunt Sophy knows about the Clock family and regularly chats with Pod, but the housekeeper and her husband have never seen the little people, and that is the way the little borrowers like it . . . Humans are dangerous people and the survival of the little people depends on never being seen by the giant humans.
One day while Papa Pod is sneaking through the house in search of little treasures, he is seen by a giant little boy! Old Aunt Sophy's eight-year-old great-nephew from Boston in America is here for a visit, and on his first day he sees Papa Pod running out of a doll house with a tiny doll house cup and saucer for his wife Homily.
What Horror! Papa Pod gets back to his clock home he excitedly tells his wife that they must leave immediately . . . Little boys are the worst thing for the borrowers . . . their lives are in great danger . . . little boys are unpredictable and dangerous to all the little people.
So begins a great adventure with a family of tiny people living in the British home of an old lady and her caretakers, Mr. and Mrs. Crampfurl, and now the eight year old boy from Boston who discovers the tiny people. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it, gather children of all ages around you and enjoy the show.
