Rumpelstiltskin is a classic Brothers Grimm tale about greed, magic, and the power of belief. In this 1987 musical version by Cannon Films, the boastful miller declares that his beautiful daughter Katie (Amy Miller) has the power to spin gold out of straw. The gold-loving King (Clive Revill) hears of her talent and demands that she spin gold for him. Katie looks to a magical and greedy elf (Billy Barty) for help, but is forced to pay him with her precious jewelry and the promise of her first-born child. Eventually, Katie's efforts for the King are rewarded with the dream-fulfilling privilege of marrying the Prince, but when their son is born, she must guess the elf's secret name or lose her precious son to the greedy elf. This production features several lovely songs and is wholesome family fun appropriate for children ages 3 and older. --Tami Horiuchi
