Storyline

A cat belonging to a poor miller's son thinks up a great plan for bringing a title, wealth, and marriage for his owner. He begins to carry it out, using a few birds and rabbits as gifts for the king, his own wit, and a pair of boots that make him appear human when he puts them on. However, his owner has no idea that the cat has told everyone that his master is a marquis rather than a miller's son until the king has arrived to meet him. Soon the king's daughter and the miller's son fall in love, and the king wants very much to see the land and the castle belonging to this rich "marquis." Written by Pav

Don't miss it if you like fairy tales - or Christopher Walken
3 December 2001 | by (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This is one of my personal favorite Cannon Movietales because, believe it or not, it's full of great performances. Christopher Walken is a great actor, and who knew he did children's movies? Jason Connery (yes, Sean's son) does a great job too, although he does have a habbit to look a little embarrassed that he's in this. Carmela Marner is lovely as the princess and is (I believe) related to the director Eugene Marner. My rating: **** out of *****
