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

It is a picture that will charm the young and tickle adults, since the old fairy tale has been transferred to the screen by a Disney who kept his tongue in his cheek throughout the film's animation.

Although this rarely achieves the heights of classics like Snow White and Dumbo, it still has its moments.

Despite being understandably technologically eclipsed... Sleeping Beauty still possesses an ageless Technirama charm and joie de vivre that's hard to find in many modern children's films.

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