| Love these old films
I used to love watching these when they were screened during an afternoon. Really proper classic fairy tales, not messed about with or overly 'Disneyfied'.

I loved particularly Beauty and the Beast with Klaus Kinski as the Beast and Susan Sarandon as Beauty even though it was virtually a direct lift from my all time favourite Beauty and the Beast movie, La Belle et La Bete, a Jean Cocteau classic from the 1940s. I have only just realised that these are available on DVD and have just treated myself to volume 1 - Rumplestiltskin and Rapunzel. They were delivered with humour and class by the most amazing stable of actors.

Looking forward to a nostalgic wallow.
