Big-budget fantasy based very loosely on the Grimm Brothers' lives and three of their stories: "The Dancing Princesses," "The Cobbler and the Elves," and "The Singing Bone." Good, fun Puppetoon scenes, but leaves much else to be desired. A megawatt cast and the ubiquitous hand of producer-director Pal are not enough to cover the flaws. The biographical parts are hokey, and the tales used are the wrong ones. Disappointing but historically interesting. The second-ever story film done in Cinerama.

The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm came out in 1962 and has a total running time of 134 minutes. Laurence Harvey, Karl-Heinz Boehm, Claire Bloom and Buddy Hackett star in this about the Grimm brothers. This film isn’t true about the brothers. It’s more of a story based off some of their stories. Some of the stories in this film include “The Dancing Princess”, “The Cobbler and the Elves” and “The Singing Bone”.
