Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair
7 September 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of the Shirley Temple Storybook involved the telling of the tale of Rapunzel, a young lady like Samson who never cut her hair after a witch took her from her crib in exchange for a sprig of rampian weed. Carol Lynley was a beautiful Rapunzel and Don Dubbins a most dashing prince.

Two things really stand out for me from this episode. One was Marian Seldes as the grief stricken mother who made a faustian bargain with a witch to exchange her infant daughter for that rampian to brighten her house. She thinks it's a big old joke until the witch takes the infant one night and then kills husband Phillip Abbott when he attempts to follow her. I still remember Marian rocking the cradle as she tells Don Dubbins about what happened and the camera closes in on the dried twigs that used to be rampian leaves.

The second thing is Agnes Moorehead as the witch. Years before she was Endora, she was a really wicked witch that gave little kids and big kids, big nightmares across the nation. Don Dubbins was a brave prince indeed to assault that tower and rescue Lynley from Moorehead.

I always have wondered, using that hair as a rope must have really been painful for Rapunzel.

It's the episode I remember best from that season of the Shirley Temple Storybook.
