Early long version of the fairy tale
The movie has a somewhat different plot than the American standard version of Rumpelstiltskin and elements of some other fairy tales elements have been added (for example, a magic carpet and Simple Simon).
Acting is not of the best and often done for comedy. Sets and costumes are more fun than fashion.
Quite suitable for children, though the special effects are cheesy by modern standards and someone may have to read them the titles.
The New York Museum of Modern Art restoration is quite nice despite a few scenes that seem out of place. It looks much better than most restored films of the period.
