Singing Ringing Tree, The

UBIQUITOUSLY HALF-REMEMBERED dubbed film from the good folk of Czechoslovakia featuring (in no particular order): a handsome prince, an arrogant princess, an “aged” king, a nurse, a wicked dwarf, a captain-of-the-guard, a sort of cardboard dolphin and, well, a singing, ringing tree. That may have been able to speak as well. With the usual moralistic undertone, the princess was “turned ugly” until she started performing good deeds for local folks. Of course.

    The big fish… supposed to be friendly, but weirdly disturbing. Like the whole thing. The unnerving feeling this gave you watching as a little kid was like very little else.

    It’s East German, not Czech, though. And the Prince and Princess are still alive! Well, the actors who played them are.
