Hansel and Gretel DVD 1954 Family Opera Fantasy Animation Color
Stars of Hansel and Gretel: Anna Russell, Mildred Dunnock, Frank Rogier
With brilliant imagination and technical wizardry, this 1954 feature film used stop-action animation, and hand-sculpted dolls and sets to create a fantasy land of unearthly beauty. Set to Engelbert Humperdinck’s classic 1892 opera, sung by some of the most acclaimed performers of the 1950’s, this recording was nominated for a Grammy Award. This may be the definative production of one of the greatest fairy tales ever told.
This was a very uniquely done movie and while the picture is nowhere near what we get today in HD, etc., it’s quite viewable – fascinating actually – and the sound is excellent. The last two screen shots are taken from the DVD. The actual moving picture quality is a little better because those are frozen during movement.

Note to Buyers
Mayda Mart movies consist of mostly American films made before 1964. These carefully researched films have been considered to be in the public domain in the USA for many years. Why is a film in the public domain? Briefly, films fall into the public domain because they were never properly registered with the Library of Congress in the first place or were not renewed as required by the prevailing copyright laws at the time. This movie has been researched and found to be in the public domain in the U.S. because the copyright has either expired and is no longer valid or the film was not copyrighted at all. Researched first with the United States Copyright Office Public Catalog as well as other public domain resources.
