On my "Best" list
22 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am an elementary music teacher and Peter and the Wolf is a standard in my repertoire of fun ways to learn about music. I have used many different versions of audio and video presentations of this story and this version is by far at the top of my list. I enjoy the Chuck Jones animation and the symphonic production of the classic instrumentation is perfect. But, without a doubt, my attraction to this version of the story is primarily the lovely, heart-warming live-action story that frames the animation. Lloyd Bridges, as Grandfather, does some of his best work here, practically presenting a master class in acting in the few short scenes. He brings me to tears every time and I've seen this video at least 100 times. Kirstie Alley totally makes me believe she is seeing her father for the first time in years and I just don't understand why we haven't seen more of Ross Malinger, the grandson, since his appearances in this and Sleepless in Seattle. I should also draw attention to the amazing set of Grandfather's log cabin. The beautiful, authentic set decoration draws me in every time and I often go to this cabin in my imagination. I highly recommend this movie as a family must see. And the bonus features will contribute to a good music education.
