No Humor, But Still Solid
12 March 2017 | by zkonedogSee all my reviews

Usually, it is the humor of Faerie Tale Theatre episodes that make them tick. This time, however, it is just a solid re-telling of the classic children's tale. The emotions are palpable, while the visuals and tone are also quite striking.

Guest stars include Ricky Schroder, Joan Collins, Paul Dooley, and Bridgette Anderson.

The acting of the two children really stands out in this performance, as they prove to be more than up to the task of executing some difficult material.
