#27: So Dear To My Heart (1949) - UltimateDisney.com's Top Live Action Disney Films Countdown (2072 words)
My memories of those days remain potent and vivid -- the cracked earth of the fields in the summer, the minnows in the creek nibbling on my fingertips in the spring, the peace of a home-made blanket and a cup of hot chocolate in the fall and winter.
In many ways, So Dear to my Heart was the first of a long line of live-action Disney period films that were defined more by their integrity and their commitment to serious drama than they were by concerns over reaching a mass audience.
So Dear to my Heart was the fore-runner to films that today stand among the best of his achievements in dramatic live-action films, namely 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Darby O'Gill and the Little People, Pollyanna, The Three Lives of Thomasina, Those Calloways, Treasure Island, and Old Yeller.
