The Magic Mirror: Once upon a time, in a faraway land, with graceful forests and towering mountains, there lived a beautiful young queen. As well as being lovely, she was a warm person.

More entertaining than it should be
3 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This modest Snow White adaptation from Faerie Tale Theatre is obviously low-budget and aimed more at children than adults, but I confess it's my favorite episode of this entire series, at least from what I have seen of it. Spoofing fairy tale logic and unafraid of making the actors seem as silly as possible, it's a joy. The highlights are Vanessa Redgrave as the campiest evil queen ever put to film and Tony Cox as the eternally frustrated dwarf Bubba.

If you have kids, this would be fun to show them, though they may think it a little slow if they have no patience. But even if you have no kids, this is great fun. It'll make you feel ten again.
