A king with seven daughters who is extremely over protective locks them in their room at night. But for some reason they order shoes from the cobbler practically every day and the king has to pay for them. And when he ask them why, they don't give him a straight answer. So he sends word that whoever figures out why they need so many shoes, he will have the hand of the daughter of his choice. But so far none have succeeded cause they make sure no one can find out. But a soldier upon learning of this decides to find out after being given a cloak that renders him invisible. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Did You Know?


The Soldier: You know, most women your age are already married.
Jeanetta: I take that as a compliment, soldier. My father has been trying to marry me off for years, but I am not marrying kind.
The Soldier: Oh really? I would have thought otherwise.
Jeanetta: No. I have no patience for hearts and flowers and young men who brag about this victory and that. There's more to life than romance.

One of the best Faerie Tale Theatre productions
19 October 2001 | by (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I have always loved this movie, and I always will. I first saw it when I was four, and I fell in love with it. It's beautifully done, and the actors are all clearly enjoying themselves. Of course it has its problems, the costumes in particular perhaps, but it's just fun and very enjoyable. Peter Weller is adorable as the soldier, Lesley Ann Warren is just her usual lovable self, and Roy Dotrice seems to be having the time of his life!
