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 definitive 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.
