The Singing, Ringing Tree: Tales from Europe

1957 NR

In this fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, a beautiful but spoiled princess covets the titular mystical tree. To win her love, a prince embarks on an epic quest to find the tree for her -- but there's a big catch. The tree will only ring and sing if the princess declares her love for the prince. This strange and magical German musical, starring Christel Bodenstein and Eckhart Dux, is presented in its uncut version with the original BBC narration.
