Storyline

This is a straight version of the old fairy tale, with John Carradine as the Emperor. It was filmed in South Florida, with exteriors in Coral Gables and Miami's Vizcaya. The hero bests the villainous efforts of two scheming tailors who convince the vain king that their clothes are so marvelous that only smart people can see them. Written by Doug Kaye

Notes from a cast member.
4 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another reviewer asked what the pop group Spanky & Our Gang could have added to the film. I was in the film and can answer that. Their presence was much like Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye's in "Cat Ballou". They bridged the action with song, and served as sort of a chorus for the fairy tale. The year after we filmed this, they made their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and their career took off. Someplace this film is sitting in a can on a shelf. Both the producer, Jeff Gillen, and the director, Bob Clark, have passed on, and it was my understanding that it had been sold years before to Hal Roach Studios -- and I hadn't even known they were still in existence.
