Sleeping Beauty has been regarded as a minor classic for too long. This restored edition should reinforce that it's a classic, period.

The hero and heroine are sugar sculpture, and the witch looks like a clumsy tracing from a Charles Addams cartoon.

Disney's last great fairy tale adaptation for more than thirty years, until Beauty and the Beast… a worthy successor to Snow White and Pinocchio.

The picture is so misanthropic that its happy ending feels more coma-dream than fairy-tale resolution
