REVIEWS

Review by biddie mac (posted on 27-Feb-2005)

One of the best kids movies made. The acting was excellent. The story of course was a well known one but the fim was full of interesting turns. It was colourful, sweet, exciting, frightening, and full of life. The music was excellent and Russ Tamblyn was a perfect Tom Thumb. I still sing the songs, over the years to my kids and now to my grandkids. The Yawning Man song still rocks them off to sleep. Can I get this on DVD/video? As I would love a copy.
