Cannon Movie Tales: Rumpelstiltskin Reviews
A poor but beautiful girl lives with her father in the forest. They meet the prince and they become smitten, but the king demands an amazing task be completed to earn his son's hand in marriage. He demands she weaves straw into gold after the girl's father alludes she is capable. The girl is locked in a room and given one night to complete the task. She sits in the room with no idea how to conquer this task until a magic man of sorts appears and promises to complete the task for a small fee, and unimaginative fee. Will the girl succumb to the price of the strange man or be beheaded by the king?
"The last man who said 'but' had his head chopped off."
David Irving, director of CHUD II, Night if the Cyclone, Good-bye Cruel World, The Emperor's New Clothes, and Sleeping Beauty, delivers Rumpelstiltskin. The storyline for this picture is interesting and fun to watch unfold. The musical numbers are mediocre but the acting is fun and entertaining as were the settings and costumes.
"The devil told you that!"
I came across this on Netflix and thought it had potential as an interesting period pierce of a classic tale. It was pretty good and worth a viewing. It was far from a classic movie, but it tells the story well in an entertaining way. I recommend watching this once.
"If I am this nice, there will be a price."
The songs are good, but this one feel slike it's missing some of the delightful charm that made the others seem so special. It was the the first of the series, so maybe they were still testing out some things.
Still, a nice effort and great for families and kids.
use to watch it all the time
