"Finally! A wide-screen release of this wonderful RANKIN/BASS Production. The short ANIMAGIC Production of the song "Peace Berries" by Maury Laws/Romeo Muller is worth the price of admission alone. Romeo Muller (RANKIN/BASS writer) even appears in the film and can be seen shouting right at the beginning of the film. I especially like the performances of Zero Mostel as Kublai Hhan and Desi Arnaz as Marco Polo. Jack Weston and Cie Cie Win Are also GREAT! There are some minor flaws in the way the film moves BUT overall it is enjoyable and features a GREAT Maury Laws score! Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass Proved they could make an enjoyable film and snuck some ANIMAGIC in for good measure!
