A short film about magical pancakes
18 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this film a lot when I was in elementary school, on one of those old reel-to-reel classroom projectors.

Hermione Gingold (who played the mayor's wife in "The Music Man") plays a witch who befriends a young boy after he discovers her living in the attic of the new house he moves into with his mother. At some point the witch ends up making pancakes for everyone. The ecstasy induced by consuming these pancakes is depicted on film by showing the characters freeze up and stare out into space as fuchsia-colored spots dance around in front of their faces. The pancakes are a big hit, of course, and the mother, son, and witch open up a pancake restaurant. It sounds a little odd, I know, but it's actually quite entertaining. Definitely worth checking out if you can find it.
