Marianne Christina Schilling,
An elf gives a queen a magic spell for the baby she always wanted. But an evil curse is placed over her daughter, Rosebud, which results in the king demanding that all the spindles in the kingdom be destroyed. As Rosebud grows into a naive yet pretty young woman, she wonders why no one in the kingdom ever has new cloth. She convinces her parents to go on a journey to a neighboring kingdom, not knowing what awaits her as soon as the king and queen are gone. Written by
Morgan Fairchild flew to Israel to begin filming on May 6, 1986. She had been scheduled to host the May 10, 1986 episode of Saturday Night Live (1975) but decided to cancel that gig in order to take this role. Despite the film's troubled production, she revealed in an email with a fan that she loved working with director David Irving and that numerous parents of children have approached her through the years praising the film.

Wait! I have not given my gift yet. The wicked curse can't be undone, but the evil it does to *everyone* can be lessened now. Dear Queen and King, for I still have my gift to bring. She'll prick her finger on a spindle, but sleep, not death, this all it will kindle. And she will sleep 100 years, so by my gift your evil clears. She will awaken from sleepy bliss, when a true prince finds and wakes her with a kiss.

Now I can't imagine Kitty from "Cocoon" as being Rosebud anymore, she just barely seems like the same woman... but this is a pretty good film. I loved it as a kid, and the Red Fairy ... needless to say... scared the bejeezus out of me. The prince in the end has such a small role that it's pathetic -- but I love the little people. This version I dislike the most out of the Cannon Tales as an adult, but I still adored them as a child.
