Movie Reviews

Beverly d'Angelo and Bernadette Peters are standouts
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 10/08/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"SLEEPING BEAUTY is one of the earliest episodes in the FAERIE TALE THEATRE series. The production values are lavish and the costumes heavenly. Beverly d'Angelo and Bernadette Peters lead a strong cast.

The story recounts a childless king and queen (played by Sally Kellerman and Rene Auberjonois) who are finally blessed with a child after receiving some helpful advice from a fairy. At the child's christening, all the fairies are invited to bestow gifts upon the little princess. However, the wicked Henbane (Beverly d'Angelo) gets left off the list and gatecrashes the event, cursing the princess to a premature death from a spindle-prick. Kindly good fairy Cookie (Carol Kane) remedies the curse by changing a few details: the princess won't die, only sleep until woken by the kiss of a true Prince.

Utterly enchanting. Christopher Reeve is perfect as the Prince, with the cast also including Ron Rifkin and George Dzundra. Beverly d'Angelo is hilarious as the addled Henbane and Bernadette Peters is an ideal princess (she even gets to sing!)."
Wonderful childhood shows come to dvd

"I have waited a long time for the Faerie tale theatre shows to come to dvd. I grow up watching these shows every sunday morning before church. They are just as (if not more) entertaining now than they were all those years ago."
A Classic Film in the Faerie Tale Theatre Series

"Another one of my favorite films in the Faerie Tale Theatre series. Christopher Reeve plays the galliant prince who loves listening to a good story or two. Bernadette Peters plays the beautiful and graceful princess. Carol Kane plays a very whimsical good fairy. And watch out for Beverly DeAngelo as the wicked fairy Henbaine. She really used to scare me when I was little especially as the fire breathing dragon. A very interesting scene in the film. The special effects are intriguing. Although, I feel the plot is slowed down by a few unnecessary segments, I still love this movie and would recommend it to absolutely everyone!!! A+"
I loved this movie as a child and I still love it today!

"Faerie tale theatre has lots of wonderful shows with great actors, but my favorite is this one. Christopher Reeves and Burnedette Peters are wanderful actors that bring the tale of Sleeping Beauty to life. If you never watched one of Shelly Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre collections, I highly recommend watching them all."
