This “story as outdated as time” follows the adventures of Belle, a shiny younger girl who finds herself imprisoned in the fort of a mysterious beast. With the assistance of the castle's enchanted personnel, a delightful and delicate romance develops between these two not likely pals and Belle soon learns an important lesson of all — that proper Magnificence comes from within.

Editorial Overview

The movie that formally signaled Disney's animation renaissance (following The Little Mermaid) and the one animated feature to obtain a Absolute Best Picture Oscar nomination, Beauty and the Beast is still the yardstick during which all other animated motion pictures must be measured. It relates the story of Belle, a bookworm with a dotty inventor for a father; when he inadvertently offends the Beast (a prince whose coronary heart is just too hard to like anyone besides himself), Belle boldly takes her father's position, imprisoned in the Beast's gloomy mansion. Naturally, Belle teaches the Beast to love. What makes this one of these dazzler, besides the amazingly entire animation and the winning coterie of aiding characters (the Beast's mansion is overrun via quipping, dancing household gadgets) is the array of gorgeous and hilarious songs by using composer Alan Menken and the late, lamented lyricist Howard Ashman. (The title Tune gained the 1991 Best Song Oscar, and Menken's score scored a trophy as neatly.) The downright funniest Song is “Gaston,” a lout's paean to himself (together with the immortal line, “I Take Advantage Of antlers in all of my de-co-ra-ting”). “Be Our Visitor” is transformed into an impressed Busby Berkeley homage. Given That Ashman's passing, animated musicals haven't quite reached the same exhilarating stage of wit, sophistication, and pure pleasure. –David Kronke –This Text refers to an out of print or unavailable Edition of this title.
