Storyline

When a poor Depression-era mountain father and stepmother can no longer afford to feed their children, Hansel and Gretel, they walk them into the woods and "lose" them. Banjo tunes serenade the resourceful pair through the misty forests, the harrowing adventures in the witch's decorative log cabin with its outdoor kitchen, and eventually back home to their backwoods hollow. This tale of self-reliance and mutual loyalty is narrated by Tom Davenport.


"Our audiences loved it. Kids hissed at the witch and shouted 'do it' as Gretel hesitated before pushing her into the oven...Excellent for stimulating talk about scary feelings and things. Great for mask-making, dramatizations, and mime. A four-star film for all ages."
