In this live-action version of the classic fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel are the offspring of an impoverished woodcutter and his wife who wander into the woods in this Grimm Brother's fairy tale. The trail of bread crumbs they leave to find their way back is eaten by birds, and the children are lured into the gingerbread house of the wicked witch.


The part of Gretel was played by 13-14 year old Nicola Stapleton.

Ahh, I thought so:

This is one of those Yoram Globus/Menahem Golan Cannon Movie Tales productions.

Is this a German release? The movies were originally all in English...

They were usually pretty good though more geared to adults than children; lotsa dialogue. I've tried to show this [and a couple others in this series] to the kids in my after-school program and most got disinterested with all the 'talk'.

However; I enjoyed them. :)

Thank you for releasing, emuler!!

Nicola Stapleton did a bit part (very small role) in a TV series Hannay at about the same time as this. Not enough for a release here, but I'm posting a short (and surprisingly FLM :inlove ) clip.

Just a few MB, so its on RS. If anyone has problems with RS, let me know and I'll post on emule too.

Enjoy. :)

Perhaps my comment 'surprisingly FLM' wasn't specific enough. :think

Here's a transcript of what's in the clip. Hannay is revisiting the place where he spent his early childhood. This little girl comes by, skipping rope. She stops near him and says
"Good morning to you, sir".
"Good morning, sweetheart." he replies.
She smiles shyly and says "I wish I was!" and skips off.
He laughs, and moves on. :dance

Anyway, back to discussing Hansel and Gretel; there's a very cute song in it sung by Nicola. "The Fairy Song". :thumbsup It is not an easy song to sing, and she does remarkably well. The tune is based on a German song that was used in Hannibal Rising.
