I taught music in Bloomfield junior high from 1970-1998
13 March 2004 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This is a classic. I used to show it to my 7th grade students each year. We all enjoyed the film. It made the song it was based upon come alive in a humorous way. Not a word is spoken. All is done through mime and expressions/visuals etc. The creativity of Wendy Toye is very evident throughout the film. It makes one think about the cost in money and time True Love spends to win over his beloved. She does get a little annoyed with all the confusion caused by the birds and animals, but ah...those five gold rings over and over again!! All the servants eventually leave the home, crowded out by the menagerie. And, in the end, True Love and Wendy leave to live happily ever after!
