"Slipper and the Rose"
has a lot of dancing in it.
The horse and other animals dance.
But this isn't some chessy dance.
This is ballet dancing it looks really cool.
This is FUN TO WATCH.
Because it's sweet but really funny.
I don't really like musicals but this one was good.

"The fully restored version (based on the British release) that was released in 2000 on DVD ran 143 minutes and had some great extras including one of the better commentaries I've ever heard. This DVD is listed as much shorter in run time and the description doesn't mention extras. I really enjoyed the restored version, the songs ran longer and some plot points made more sense. I'd love to order this for gifts since the other is out of print but I don't want to give the edited American version especially if it doesn't include that commentary."
143 minutes long NOT 127 minutes

"Contrary to what every other person has written about this DVD version of The Slipper And The Rose,
This DVD version released by Trinity Home Entertainment is NOT 127 minutes long even though it states in the description here on Amazon.com that it's 127 minutes long.
I own a copy of both DVD versions (Fullscreen released by Trinity Home Entertainment and Anamorphic Widescreen released by Image Entertainment) and BOTH are 143 minutes long.
Although this Fullscreen version by Trinity Home Entertainment is just the movie and does not contain any of the EXTRAS that the Anamorphic Widescreen Image Entertainment DVD has, both DVD versions contain the original length British release 143 minute version of The Slipper And The Rose.
The American edited version was 126 minutes long, which was released in 1978 as a Fullscreen transfer on LaserDisc by MCA DiscoVision of which I also own a RARE copy of it as well."
