5.0 out of 5 stars The Blue Bird 19 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I spent aaages trying to find this for my Mum-we used to watch it all the time when I was tiny, and I managed to get it for her for Christmas and it didn't fail to disappoint...a massive blub-fest ensued. Definitely one to watch as it has some very poignant and clever ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy memories 9 Jan 2012
By pjlow
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my mum who is 86 and has alzheimers.
She has often mentioned how much she loved this film when she was younger, so I decided to seek it out as a Xmas gift.
Really pleased to find it, and surprised at the excellent quality.
The film is in english, and it is very easy to remove any foreign subtitles.
Yes, it is old fashioned and rather cheesy, but I am sure it will bring back happy memories to many people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluebird Revisited 19 May 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent full-colour DVD of a very old filmn (1940) and exactly as remembered from childhood. Two children go on adventures to find the bluebird of happiness finding it at last where they least expected.

One of the most moving scenes is when they think of their grandparents who are then seen asleep outside their cottage and who awaken to welcome their grandchidren. When the children leave they sit once again outside their cottage and fall asleep. The message to the viewer is that everytime you think of those loved ones who are dead, they are brought back to life again, if only in memory.

Full value for such a cheap DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Child's Bluebird of Happiness! 3 July 2008
By F. S. L'hoir TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I'm prejudiced about this film, because I saw it as a small child, and was absolutely enchanted. From a child's viewpoint, everything looked magical. I especially loved the fairy, Light, and the Land of the Unborn Children. As a grownup, I can appreciate the slightly tacky, not to mention low-budget, nature of the costumes and settings, but I don't care. I still love it!!!

For one thing, the color has been restored beautifully; for another, Shirley Temple's terminal cuteness was finally curbed by a competent director, Walter Lang. Every curl still remains in place, but she puts in a more than creditable performance as the spoiled brat, Mytyl. The little boy playing her brother Tyltyl is also engaging, as are Sibyl Jason, and Juanita Quigley as children in supporting roles. And Gale Sondergaard is brilliant as Tylette the sneaky cat. Her exchanges with the growling dog Tylo are highly amusing.

If children have not become too jaded by their exposure to computers, and can still believe in magic and fairies, they will love this allegorical fable based upon the novel by Maurice Maeterlinck.
