Movie Info

Stanley Donen directed this lugubrious musical fantasy based on the classic Antoine de Saint-Exupery children's parable, featuring a musical score by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe -- their first film score since Gigi. The simple story concerns a French aviator (Richard Kiley) who crashes his airplane in the middle of the Sahara desert and comes upon a young blonde prince (Steven Warner) from another planet. The Little Prince tells the pilot that he is inspecting the universe and stays in

Audience Reviews for The Little Prince

Nothing can compare to the book (which to this day is one of my favorites) but this is a fun interpretation of the story.

I thought the film captured the essence of the book beautifully, though some of the pilot's songs were a bit campy and over-dramatic. Still a classic :)

So what if Little Prince is adapted on-screen?The big mistake is Donen on the directing chair.The glory of the past and the Funny Faces don't work on this children's movie.A wonderful performance by Fosse (Jackson totally ripped of the dance moves) is not enough to give this an alternative credit.On my behalf,just a simple musical....and an insult to Exupery's fans!!!
