Storyline

In a world of odd people and surreal habits, the Queen weeps and wails: her daughter Betty won't wake up. With the court looking on, the King swings into action, jiggling the bed with the help of a knight, calling on a doctor and then a witch, and also phoning for a prince. As the prince, on his steed, makes his way to Betty's bedside - a trip replete with adventures - we watch others try to wake the young woman. On-lookers include a jester, Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, and a multi-eyed gargoyle. Will the prince make everything right? Where are we? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

How Much Film Have We Got?
27 June 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Betty is asleep and won't wake up, despite the best efforts of her Alice-in-Wonderland royal parents. So what do we do? We run through a large series of sight gags, endless sight gags. And at first they are very funny indeed. But after a while they simply begin to grow wearisome. The witch comes and waves her wand and Betty's head transmutes into an endless and unrelated variety of things. A knight is called, and along he comes on his charger, and the horse moves in every which way: he gallops, he trots, he runs on his hind legs, his forelegs, whatever is called upon to fill up time on this cartoon.

After a while, that becomes to the point of this film: to bring it up to its allotted length, by running variations on a theme. And after a while it becomes wearisome. Especially when you see what makes her wake up.
