Synopsis

In an enchanted forest filled with animatronic critters, a woodcutter named Honest John - honest by name, honest by nature - is granted three wishes by the Forest Queen. What John and his wife want more than anything is a son, but the one they receive is a little unusual to say the least - he's three inches tall, wrapped in a leaf, and wears an acorn for a hat! George Pal’s adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm tale won the 1959 Oscar for best special effects, and the camera trickery stands up well to this day, being if anything even more satisfying now that we're all so used to fancy computer-generated effects.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
