Cardmember Offers



Faerie Tale Theatre: Cinderella
Originally aired on Shelley Duvall's family-oriented HBO television series, this lively retelling of the classic tale features Jennifer Beals as the good-hearted slave girl who overcomes all to become a princess. Matthew Broderick plays the handsome object of her affection. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Faerie Tale Theatre: The Little Mermaid
Mork and Mindy's Pam Dawber plays the title role in this hour-long adaptation of The Little Mermaid. This is the tale of a beautiful young mermaid with an exquisite singing voice, who falls in love with a human being. To gain "human-hood" herself, she must give up all that she holds dear-including her voice. The spirit of the original Hans Christian Andersen story is strictly adhered to, with some delightfully anachronistic interpolations. Ms. Dawber is ably supported by such reliables as Brian Dennehy, Karen Black, Treat Williams and Helen Mirren. The Little Mermaid was originally telecast on the Showtime cable service as part of the Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre anthology. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Faerie Tale Theatre: Dancing Princesses
This made-for-TV children's film (from the Faerie Tale Theatre) concerns five princesses who wear out the soles of their shoes each day. The King promises a fortune to the person who can figure out the reason for the problem. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Faerie Tale Theatre: Princess and the Pea
A princess from an obscure kingdom (Liza Minnelli) must undergo an unusual test to prove her royal origins in this lively episode from Shelley Duvall's popular, family-oriented cable television series. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
