Fourteen-year-old Creator/JodieFoster -- already with "Oscar-nominated" attached to her name, thanks to ''Film/TaxiDriver'' -- stars as Casey Brown, a street-smart juvenile delinquent living in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles. One day, she is discovered by con man Harry Bundage (Leo [=McKern=]), who realizes that she is the perfect double for the long-lost granddaughter of Lady Gwendolyn St. Edmund (Helen Hayes). Bundage thus brings Casey with him to England to meet Lady St. Edmund, whom she successfully fools. You see, Lady St. Edmund's old manor house Candleshoe is alleged to contain a hidden treasure and Bundage, along with his partner-in-crime Clara Grimsworthy (Vivian Pickles), need someone on the inside to go through the LinkedListClueMethodology.

Fourteen-year-old JodieFoster, already with "Oscar-nominated" attached to her name thanks to ''TaxiDriver'', is Casey Brown, a street smart juvenile delinquent living in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles. One day, she is discovered by con man Harry Bundage (Leo [=McKern=]), who realizes that she is the perfect double for the long-lost granddaughter of Lady Gwendolyn St. Edmund (Helen Hayes).

But after joining the household, Casey discovers a terrible truth. Lady St. Edmund is an ImpoverishedPatrician and doesn't even know it. Her only servant left is the butler, Priory (Creator/DavidNiven), who pretends to be all the rest of the household staff by being a MasterOfDisguise. A group of local orphans taken in by the Lady (Veronica Quilligan, Ian Sharrock, Sarah Tamakuni, David Samuels) do most of the upkeep on the house and keep Candleshoe in the black by selling food grown on the estate at the local market. Of course, Casey couldn't care less about any of this and is only concerned with finding the treasure... [[CharacterDevelopment at least for awhile anyway]].

* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Anna. It's even signaled by [[RegionalRiff stereotypical "Oriental riff"]]. Casey even says [[GenreSavvy "You gotta be kidding"]] just before Anna takes her out with a kung-fu chop.

* GenreSavvy: Bundage tries, but it’s Casey who takes the crown. While Bundage’s original plan is to have Casey whip out the planted ‘evidence’ of her identity straight away, Casey – recognizing that Lady St. Edmund is battle-scarred from years of false leads – judges her environment and opts for a slower reveal instead, putting off the proof long enough that they’re ''actually driving away'' before Priory rushes out to intercept them. The result is that it’s Lady St. Edmund who is trying to convince ''Casey'' of her lineage, resulting in a ‘reunion’ straight out of a fairytale.
