"Make way for the town lasher"
A rich, vibrant musical fantasy based on the Brothers Grimm`s fairy tale that is delightfully fun to watch. Russ Tamblyn plays the diminutive boy Tom who comes to liven up the days of a childless middle-aged couple, a woodcutter and his wife who are granted three wishes by a very beautiful blonde fairy, the Forest Queen (June Thorburn). But then a pair of dastardly villains (played by Terry-Thomas and Peter Sellers) use the boy to steal some gold coins and his foster parents is accused of the theft. Now it`s up Tom Thumb has to save the day by exposing the real thieves. There is also a romantic subplot involving a local musician (Alan Young) who is in love with the immortal Forest Queen and doesn't realize that he can turn her into a mortal via a kiss.
A terrific movie for kids to see! As for the adults, it is sure to appeal to the inner child in each of us! The Yawning man/song almost put me to sleep as well.....almost lol!
Delightful Old Musical Grimm Fairytale about a Six Inch Boy. Loved it as a child, now my Inner Child appreciates it even more.I would love to see a remake of this by Tim Burton with Johnny Depp as Tom Thumb.I do have a question:Is Tom Thumb, played by Russ Tamblyn , Amber Tamblyn's Father or Grandfather? Just Curious.If so I wish she'd Sang & Danced in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, LOL I know this is not really a review more like observation, thought, & question.My friend xxdebxx is watching at the same time, I'll let her give you her much anticipated "Super Reviewer" review she's an excellent reviewer
