That is, until the day her father finds himself in an enormous debt after the great loss of his cargo ships in the China Sea. The whole family moves to a small cottage in the country and day after day the three men, the old man and his two sons, Robert and Nathan, must work in the fields. One day, the old man receives news that one of his ships had survived, but when he arrives at the harbor, he finds that nothing valuable was saved and that his family remains in poverty. On his way home, the old man gets lost in the forest and finds a magnificent castle where he spends the night. He remembers the promise he had made to his daughter, she had asked for one simple rose, so the man cuts a rose from the many rose bushes in the castle gardens.

Trivia

The characters of Clara, the beast's servant and her sister, the mysterious fairy, did not feature in the original story. Instead, the beast in his human form as a handsome prince appeared in Beauty's dreams instead of the wicked fairy, telling her to see past ugliness instead of warning her about the cruel heart of the beast.

Goofs

In the last scene, when the prince smiles at seeing Beauty's dress magically change, his eyebrows alter from black to blonde between frames. See more »

Quotes

Old Gentleman: Oh, please, my dear lord, eh...
Beast: Don't call me "lord"! I am a beast.
[roars loudly]
Beast: And don't argue, you'll pay for this with your life!
Old Gentleman: Eh, see, I took the rose only as a gift for my daughter, eh, Beauty.
Beast: A daughter you say? And named Beauty?
Old Gentleman: Eh, yes my lord. Ooh, I mean, beast, not lord. See, see, I'm a failed and broken man, all she asked of me was this little rose.

I personally did find this one charming...
6 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Then again I may be biased as I did grow up watching the Golden Films animations, and slowly going through re-watching them(as well as the Burbank and Jetlag animations) a lot of them are sweet and likable. Golden Films' version of Beauty and the Beast is no exception. It is not as good as their versions of Thumbelina, The Little Mermaid and Pinocchio, but one that does deserve to be judged on its own merits rather than be compared to any other version.(just for the record the 1991 Disney film is one of my absolute favourites and I admit I do prefer it, but that doesn't stop me from liking this version) The animation is not great really, I did think the colours were quite nice, but the backgrounds can lack fluidity and some of the character designs didn't work for me, Beast especially looks goofy. However, the music is wonderful, the opening song The Beauty in the Beast is a real charmer and there are some classical music favourites like Clair De Lune(Debussy), Traumerai(Schumann), Carnival of the Animals(Saint Saens) and The Nutcracker Suite(Tchaikovsky). The story has some additions like Clara, who I loved as a character, and is a little truer than the Disney film to the fairytale, and is very simple and sweet. I did like the story-book structure also. The dialogue also has a cute feel to it, again it's simple but, apart from a couple of childish moments, unlike Jetlag's Alice in Wonderland for example it wasn't overly so. The characters are engaging on the whole, you do warm to the Beast and Beauty is a likable protagonist. The voice work is interesting, always emotive and never passive. Overall, a good charming animation, the music, story and characters more than make up for the wanting animation quality. 8/10 Bethany Cox
