Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Shelley Duvall was onto a good thing when she followed up her Faerie Tale Theatre productions with the Tall Tales and Legends series in the mid-1980s. Taking beloved folk stories based on both fact (Ponce de León and the search for the Fountain of Youth) and myth (Johnny Appleseed) and adding major dollops of humor, Duvall turned out nine 54-minute episodes, each a fun-filled gem. As in the earlier Faerie Tale tellings, familiar faces and voices add to the fun: Jamie Lee Curtis stars as "Annie Oakley"; Michael York as "Ponce de León"; Danny Glover as "John Henry"; and Elliott Gould is "Casey at the Bat." The stories may be familiar, but the delightfully unexpected spin imparted by Duvall and company brings new life to these treasured yarns.
