Synopsis

Rather than being a conventional life story of the writer of so many classic fairytales, Hans Christian Andersen is a fairytale itself. Danny Kaye stars as the poor shoemaker Andersen, whose gift for making up stories that entrance children eventually leads him to having one of those yarns - The Little Mermaid - turned into a ballet. Much of the story is told though dance, and through a series of unforgettable songs such as The Inch Worm and Wonderful Copenhagen.

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. "
