This Hallmark Hall of Fame made-for-TV film is an adaptation of The Borrowers by Mary Norton.
The Borrowers follow the fortunes of tiny humans who live beneath the floorboards in the mansion of a Victorian matron. They live on the scraps left by “The Big People” and live a relatively idyllic existence until they are discovered by the matron's eight-year-old nephew. Can they avoid capture, and being exhibited as scientific curiosities?
Actors: Eddie Albert, Judith Anderson
