Charming version of a classic tale.
22 August 2005 | by phillindholmSee all my reviews

"Hansel And Gretel" is another German-made live-action fairytale imported to the US in the '60s and released by Childhood Productions. Produced originally by Schongerfilm, it's a modest but good adaptation of the Grimm brothers story. The dubbing may be out of sync (as was usually the case in Childhood Productions imports) but the voices were well chosen, and a truly beautiful musical score by Milton Delugg was added. The production values are minimalist, to say the least, but otherwise it's enjoyable. Schongerfilm produced the wonderful "Snow White" also acquired by Childhood for American release. Most of these had original soundtrack albums issued at the time which are now collector's items.
