Once Upon a Brothers Grimm
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

Once Upon a Brothers Grimm came out in 1977 and has a total running time of 102 minutes. Dean Jones (as Jakob Grimm) and Paul Sand (as Wilhelm Grimm) star in this fantasy film. This movie is about a bunch of popular old fairy tales and put all into one film. Such fairy tales include Little Red Riding Hood and the Gingerbread Lady, along with much more. This film is a musical as well. The Grimm brothers come into contact with all these characters from the fairy tales. Now, it seems that they are in their own fairy tale. This movie was very popular when it came out. It even won a couple awards.
