A Classic Tale Retold
20 June 2008 | by iwantsofiaSee all my reviews

This was an early effort from famed stop motion animator Ray Harryhausen. It basically retells the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of a little girl walking through the woods to her grandmother's house. Along the way she meets a clever wolf who wants to eat her. This version eliminates the gory aspects. Although it changes the ending, it's still a nice little film for kids.

I saw it on a cheap DVD titled "Harryhausen Shorts, Volume 1". The picture quality was acceptable, but it could do with a remastering job. Strangely, only five shorts on the DVD are Harryhausen's. IMDb doesn't list the sixth, "The Figurehead". It appears to be a British short.
