Cloris Leachman hates cigarette smoke and had to wear a lot of prosthetic make-up for her part as the witch. Due to frequent on-set smoking by crew members, the smoke would get into her mask and irritate her. She begged them not to smoke near her, which they begrudgingly tried to remember. See more »

I watched this film when I was about 6 or 7 and absolutely loved it. I used to rent it along with two other films from the same company, Puss in Boots and Snow White. When I was about 11 the video shop closed down and since then I have been searching for this film. I can still remember the words to the songs and I am now 21! Finally I have found a copy of it and cannot wait til I get it. I'm sure my son will enjoy it as much now as I did then. It is well recommended for children of all ages, although some children may find the witch a little frightening, it just depends on the child. It is a hard film to find but I would recommend looking for it and the other titles I mentioned earlier, it will be a well loved film for children and for adults!
