If you're in the moods
When I was about 7, this kind of movie attracted me a lot. well, what else did we have at that time? So, any comedy with a story would be very well come. It's like the film is made for kids, so it doesn't need to be intelligent, just a bunch of shallow routines. Or, even worse, if we take into consideration the terrible example, which, in film is supposed to be funny, of a spoiled/mean kid who nobody wants to babysit.
I couldn't understand if the choreography was supposed to be that messed up, specially for a blond girl wearing a green dress, who's always after the others.
Ok, the actor who plays Prince Arthur seems to sing well.

"After 1978, the renewal limit became the end of year for the 28th calendar year after the date in notice."
Since the year in the copyright notice in the credits is 1951 (not 1952), it was necessary to renew the copyright in 1979, not 1980. Therefore, the copyright office had no legal right to grant that renewal.

Just for fun
Abbott and Costello pretty much stick to the outline of the original, but put in 1950's stuff and a lot of slap stick. They had up's and down's, this is more up than down.

I thought this was a delightful movie!
I remember seeing this on tv when I was a kid, and I loved it, so I was delighted to be able to get ahold of a copy.
This delightful musical rendition of the classic fairy tale is entertaining for the entire family. If you're looking for perfection, you won't find it here, but what you will find is a simple, lighthearted fairy tale classic performed true to the Abbot and Costello style that we all knew and loved.
From what I've read elsewhere, this was one of two productions that Abbot and Costello did on their own, the other being called, "The Navy".
