Tough little kids. (15 movies items)
"He's supposed to be 5 in the movie, I believe (or at least in the book), but young Danny is one of the toughest kids on this list (Kubrick version, not ABC mini-series version). He hides, runs, saves his mother's life (or at least wakes her up in time), outwits his father in a gigantic hedge maze, manages not to pee his pants when going into room 2-3-7 or when seeing those creepy twins... I would be a ball of screaming meemies.
Well, he screamed a few times...but who blames him?
