Fantastic production
20 June 2003 | by BlueghostSee all my reviews

I caught this on HBO years ago, and was dazzled by the production values. I was even more stunned by the fact that it was a 1971 production: a period in film that was very transitional for children's venues. The sets, costumes and dancing are all executed with a great amount of care in this production. Grab a copy for your kids or grandkids, and watch it with them. You won't be dissapointed.

One can only hope that it will see a DVD release someday.
