Duration: 2 Hours

(1958) Amiable retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about a woodsman and his wife (Bernard Miles and Jessie Matthews) whose thumb-sized son (Russ Tamblyn) thwarts the scheme of a comic pair of villains (Terry-Thomas and Peter Sellers) to rob the village treasury. Director George Pal mixes a variety of animation and special effects with occasional lyrics sung by Peggy Lee to fashion a pleasant fantasy that will amuse children and pacify parents, though of less appeal for more demanding viewers. (A-I -- general patronage) (Not rated) TCM (cable)
