Indian in the Cupboard – Edited
Nine year old Omri (Hal Scardino) is astounded when he puts a toy Indian in a small cupboard his mother gave him and it turns magically into a real live miniature early American Indian named Little Bear (Litefoot). Before long, they become good friends and Omri does his best to introduce Little Bear to the modern world, but still keep him a secret from everyone. And Little Bear teaches Omri about his 18th century Onondoga tribe and their Indian ways. But Omri's best friend, Patrick discovers Little Bear and the magic cupboard and creates Boone (David Keith), a real live miniature cowboy from the frontier west. Boone and Little Bear don't get along well at first, but, after some confrontations, grow to respect each other. The boys and their miniature companions have lots of fun, exciting experiences together. Eventually Omri comes to realize that both Little Bear and Boone must be "sent back" to their real existence. INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD is truly a fascinating, fun film with lots of pathos and suspense. Children will be enthralled by it and parents will be immensely entertained as well.
