Rumpelstiltskin came out in 1982 and has a total running itme of 60 minutes. This version is from the collection of the “Faerie Tale Theatre” by Shelley Duvall. This version is one of many of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale. Bud Cort, Shelley Duvall, Ned Beatty and Paul Dooley star in this film. The fairy tale goes like this. A girl gets put into a tower room and has three days to spin straw into gold. A dwarf comes to her and spins the straw into gold if she gave him her necklace. The second night she traded him her ring. Sadly, she didn’t have anything to off him on the third night. So the dwarf asked for her first born. She agreed. When it came time to have her first child, the dwarf returned. The lady pleaded with him. He gave her three days to guess his name. If she guessed it, he’d leave her alone. She guesses it and his name is Rumpelstiltskin.
