4.0 out of 5 stars Charming and fun, 1 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hans Christian Andersen [1952] [DVD] (DVD)
Memorable tunes, glorious technicolour ( why have one colour when you can have ten !!!) and whimisical sentiment. I thought that the Hans Christian Andersen tales might be dramatised and acted out but most are simply told verbally and with a song or two. It reminds us that despite the glitz and glamour, the magic and expense of Hollywood, there's nothing quite like a simple story well told that engages the imagination. However, there is a ballet version of 'The Little Mermaid' within the film which goes on a bit... but it is imaginatively presented.
Don't expect too much, this film is what it is ( an old Hollywood slice of entertainment ) but it's charming and fun and will bring out the kid in you!
