''The Screen Awakens To A Big Wide Wonderful World Of Enchantment!''
Fritz Genshow's "Sleeping Beauty" is another German fairy tale film imported to the US in 1965. Originally made ten years earlier, it has the timeless, dreamy quality the story should have. As usual, the settings are lovely, as are the castle and village used as background. Once again, the English dubbing is out of sync most of the time, but the voices used match the actors, so this can be forgiven. The real treat is, again, a marvelous new score by Anne and Milton Delugg, which is beautifully orchestrated by George Brackman. This is the Grimm Brothers version of the story, which is really not all that different from the better known Charles Perrault rendition. Worth looking for, but not easy to find, "Sleeping Beauty" is a winner!
