More entertaining than it should be

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.

Author: wes-connors from Los Angeles
18 January 2012

In this acceptable "Faerie Tale Theatre" TV adaptation of the Brothers Grimm classic, beautiful "Snow White" grows up in the care of her wickedly jealous step-mother (Vanessa Redgrave having fun). When she grows up to be pretty Elizabeth McGovern (as Snow White), the older queen's magic mirror (scene stealing Vincent Price) lets Ms. Redgrave know she is no longer "the fairest one of all." Redgrave insists it is a lie and conspires to kill Ms. McGovern by having a huntsman (Michael Preston) cut out her heart. In the woods, Snow White finds refuge with seven appealing dwarfs. For other reasons, a handsome singing prince (Rex Smith) also becomes interested in Snow...

***** Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (7/16/84) Peter Medak ~ Elizabeth McGovern, Vanessa Redgrave, Rex Smith, Vincent Price
