Another Winner From Cannon!
26 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Rumpelstiltskin" is another Cannon Movie Tale that does a fine job with it's classic material. Few film versions of "Rumpelstiltskin" have been made, so it's lucky they did right by the story. Amy Irving as Katie, the miller's daughter is lovely, and sings well, too. Billy Barty is a suitably creepy Rumpelstiltskin. The true stars, however, are Clive Revill as the greedy King,and Priscilla Pointer (Amy Irving's real-life mother) as the snobbish Queen. Both give intentionally hammy performances which are delightful to watch. The supporting cast includes John Moulder Brown as the Prince, Director David Irving's wife Susan Berlin as the cook's wife (star Amy Irving is his sister) and Robert Symonds, husband of Pointer, and Irving's stepfather as the Miller. Good songs, good period atmosphere, good movie.
