Editorial Reviews

Includes Four Magical Episodes from Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre Digitally Restored and Re-mastered!

Evil magicians, cursed princes, fierce ogres, wicked queens and more fill this 4-episode collection from the award-winning series. Some of the most treasured tales of magic and enchantment are brought to life with glorious productions and magnificent costumes that will leave you spellbound… happily ever after.

Aladdin (Robert Carradine) discovers a magic lamp which houses a Genie (James Earl Jones) who can grant his every wish. Unfortunately, the Evil Magician (Leonard Nimoy) sets his sights on Aladdin’s newest treasure.

In order to save her father’s life, Beauty (Susan Sarandon) travels to Beast’s (Klaus Kinski) palace, a magnificent castle in the woods. The two quickly become friends and learn the true nature of beauty.

The resourceful cat Puss (Ben Vereen) must use both skill and trickery to defeat a fierce Ogre (Brock Peters) and bring wealth and success to his best friend Edgar (Gregory Hines).

After a jealous Queen (Vanessa Redgrave) poisons Snow White (Elizabeth McGovern), it’s up to seven brave dwarfs and a handsome prince (Rex Smith) to break her spell.

4.0 out of 5 stars four all-time FTT classics! August 15, 2009
Collected in this DVD are four unforgettable stories from Shelley Duvall's beloved FAERIE TALE THEATRE series. However, the title for this compilation ("Magical Tales") is quite curious, because most (if not all) of the stories from the show can be described as "magical"! Still, your family will adore seeing these fairytale classics, enacted by a star-studded cast: Susan Sarandon, Ben Vereen, Leonard Nimoy and Vanessa Redgrave among them.

Elizabeth McGovern is luminous in the title role of Snow White. Her acting is very understated and she perfectly captures the innocence and bewilderment of the character. Vanessa Redgrave offers a tour-de-force performance as the Wicked Queen, who dons several magical disguises to ensnare our heroine. Rex Smith gives us a Prince who is handsome yet goofy (a refreshing change), and Vincent Price is a delight as both the Magic Mirror and Narrator. Series creator Shelley Duvall has a brief role as Snow White's mother during the prologue.

Beauty's (Susan Sarandon) merchant father steals a white rose from the castle of the Beast (Klaus Kinski). As punishment, the Beast orders that the merchant return to the castle in 3 days, or else one of his daughters must go in his place. Beauty selflessly sacrifices her own freedom to release her father. Once in the castle, Beauty slowly begins to win the friendship and trust of the Beast, who hides a gentle and kind heart beneath his frightening exterior.

In return for some swanky new clothes, a clever cat (Ben Vereen) promises his master Edgar (Gregory Hines) a kingdom of his own and wealth beyond his wildest dreams.
