Rumpelstiltskin ★★ 1986 (G)

Mu sical retelling of the classic Brother Grimm fairy tale. Irving plays a young girl who says she can spin straw into gold. Barty is a dwarf who helps her. The catch: she must give up her first born to pay him. Lackluster direction and uninspired acting make this version a yawner. Irving's real life mother (Pointer) and brother have roles too. 84m/C VHS, DVD . Amy Irving, Billy Barty, Robert Symonds, Priscilla Pointer, Clive Revill, John Moulder-Brown; D: David Irving.
