Swiss girl Adelheid 'Heidi' is orphaned young.
Aunt Detie brings her to grandpa Alp, who lives isolated in the Alps since his murder charge. Heidi soon takes to the wild country, especially accompanying young goatherd Peter. Grandpa refuses to send her to school in the city, but aunt Detie returns and forces him to give in. She's sent to a posh lady in Frankfurt, where she'll be a companion for crippled daughter Clara after school hours. Written by KGF Vissers. Well done version of the classic story of the orphaned young girl, Heidi played by Emma Bolger , sent to live with her hermit grandfather in his cabin away up high in the Swiss Alps.
Grandfather is an unwelcoming, gruff old man, but he very soon takes a real shine to sweet little Heidi - and Heidi takes to her new environment like a duck to water. I have seen a number of filmed versions of this story, I found this version to be one of the best. Emma Bolger is an adorable and charming young actress who gives a very endearing performance, just as she does in her memorable portrayal of Ariel in the film "In America". The mountain scenery in this film is very atmospheric and gorgeously photographed, the orchestral score is really wonderful.
An especially lovely and heartfelt family film, full of charm. Start your free trial.go

Johanna Spyri: Heidi, the Girl from the Alps
Heidi soon takes to the wild country, especially Heidi drank without stopping, for she felt exceedingly thirsty after her long journey. Taking a long breath, she put down her little bowl. The little girl ate and drank with the greatest enjoyment. After she was through, both went out into the goat-shed. Here the old man busied himself, and Heidi watched him attentively while he was  sweeping and putting down fresh straw for the goats to sleep on.
Then he went to the little shop alongside and fashioned a high chair for Heidi, to the little girl's greatest amazement. I am sure of it because it is so high.
How quickly it was made! He wandered about with his hammer and nails, repairing whatever was in need of fixing. Heidi followed him at every step and watched the performance with great enjoyment and attention. At last the evening came. The old fir-trees were rustling and a mighty wind was roaring and howling through the tree-tops. Those sounds thrilled Heidi's heart and filled it with happiness and joy. She danced and jumped about under the trees, for those  sounds made her feel as if a wonderful thing had happened to her. The grandfather stood under the door, watching her, when suddenly a shrill whistle was heard.
Heidi stood still and the grandfather joined her outside. Down from the heights came one goat after another, with Peter in their midst. Uttering a cry of joy, Heidi ran into the middle of the flock, greeting her old friends. When they had all reached the hut, they stopped on their way and two beautiful slender goats came out of the herd, one of them white and the other brown. They came up to the grandfather, who held out some salt in his hands to them, as he did every night.

Heidi tenderly caressed first one and then the other, seeming beside herself with joy. Do they both belong to us? Are they going to the stable? Are they going to stay with us? The grandfather hardly could put in a "yes, yes, surely" between her numerous questions. When the goats had licked up all the salt,  the old man said, "Go in, Heidi, and fetch your bowl and the bread.

Heidi obeyed and returned instantly. The grandfather milked a full bowl from the white goat, cut a piece of bread for the child, and told her to eat. If you need some shirts and other linen, you will find them in the bottom of the cupboard. Aunt Deta has left a bundle for you.
Now good-night, I have to look after the goats and lock them up for the night. Heidi now sat down on the bench and took her supper. The strong wind nearly blew her from her seat, so she hurried with her meal, to be able to go inside and up to her bed. She slept in it as well as a prince on his royal couch. He was always up in the morning with the sun, which rose early over the mountain-side in those summer days. It was a wild, stormy night; the hut was shaking in the gusts and all the boards were creaking.
The wind howled through the chimney and the old fir-trees shook so strongly that many a dry branch came crashing down. In the middle of the night the grandfather got up, saying to himself: "I am sure she is afraid. The first moment everything lay in darkness, when all of a sudden the moon came out behind the clouds and sent his brilliant light across Heidi's bed. Her cheeks were burning red and she lay peacefully on her round and chubby arms. She must have had a happy dream, for she was smiling in her sleep. The grandfather stood and watched her till a cloud flew over the moon and left everything in total darkness.
Then he went down to seek his bed again. Opening her eyes, she saw her little bed and the hay beside her bathed in golden sunlight.
For a short while she did not know where she was, but when she heard her grandfather's deep voice outside, she recollected everything. She remembered how she had come up the mountain the day before and left old Ursula, who was always shivering with cold and sat near the stove all day. While Heidi lived with Ursula, she had always been obliged to keep in the house, where the old woman could see her. Being deaf, Ursula was afraid to let Heidi go outdoors, and the child had often fretted in the narrow room and had longed to run outside.
She was therefore delighted to find herself in her new home and hardly could wait  to see the goats again. Jumping out of bed, she put on her few things and in a short time went down the ladder and ran outside. Everything is ready there for you," he added, pointing to a large tub of water that stood in the sun. Heidi did as she was told, and washed and rubbed herself till her cheeks were glowing. In the meanwhile the grandfather called to Peter to come into the hut and bring his bag along. The boy followed the old man, who commanded him to open the bag in which he carried his scanty dinner.
The grandfather put into the bag a piece of bread and a slice of cheese, that were easily twice as large as those the boy had in the bag himself.
