SLEEPING BEAUTY (Theatrical Release USA 1959)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Sleeping Beauty
—classic film—has a simple, but well-written storyline with outstanding, softly painted animation. It’s a good child/adult share movie that introduces one of the 17th century writings of French author Charles Perrault (who also wrote Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and Puss in Boots). Great work for Director Clyde Geronimi. Do not miss this beautiful piece of artwork.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film has completely retained its original entertainment value. It’s an excellent addition to the family home video collection and provides a musical score that introduces young children, in a very nice way, to Tchaikovsky’s classic musical sounds.
