Movie Reviews

Shelley duvall's american folklore collection
Compusurge | New York City | 08/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For fans of Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theater, Tall Tales and Legends represents another fantastic collection of star-studded stories. In this, her second anthology collection, Ms. Duvall focused on American Folklore stories rather than the more internationally known fairy tales of the more well known collection "Faerie Tale Theatre". Stories like Johnny Appleseed, Casey at the Bat, Darlin' Clementine all come alive in Tall Tales, and while the sets may be a little more sparce than in Faerie Tale Theatre, the stories and productions are once again fantastic, and the casts are once again superb. In our family, Martin Short as Johnny Appleseed is the clear cut winner among the younger sect (ages 7 and 9).

The original release of this was quite expensive and included 9 individual dvd's in individual cases. This new version is a welcomed re-build of the series onto 3 discs, compiling the stories into a smaller overall package with a very attractive price point and a smaller foot-print on the proverbial kid's shelf. Kudos to E1 for the re-formatting."
Great for the kids

"Was a great way to introduce the Tall tales books I grew up with. Kids liked watching and then reading the books at first. By the time we got to the end of the series the kids had read ahead and were critiquing the shows."
