Storyline

An old man living in an oriental city tells the story of his life to a group of kids: He too was once a young boy by the name of Little Muck - much like them, but with better manners and a heap of problems. Having lost his father at early age, little Muck is expelled from home by his greedy relatives. He wanders off into the desert hoping to find the merchant who sells good fortune. Amidst the dunes of sand he comes across a small house owned by a wicked woman and her many cats. She wants to make Little Muck her servant, but he manages to escape by stealing a pair of magic shoes which enable him to run faster than any man in the country. From there he heads right into the next set of challenges... Based on a fairy tale by Wilhelm Hauff. Written by c.winter

Trivia

Director Wolfgang Staudte was scheduled to direct the film Mutter Courage und ihre Kinder, but due to an incomplete script and disagreements with Bertolt Brecht (the author of the play) the project was laid off. To Staudte, Little Mook was, at first, little more than an interim solution. See more »

Quotes

Sultan: You have the audacity to tell me that the sun comes up earlier in the neighboring country of sultan Wasil Husain than in mine?
Magier: ...since it lies to the east, yes.
Sultan: Get out of my sight! And don't come back until the sun decides differently.
[to the ramudschins:]
Sultan: I counted the slaves in the bath today. There were only 31! I'm not going to have to dry myself, am I?
