    The Nightingale is a 60-minute cable TV presentation starring Mick Jagger, Barbara Hershey, Bud Cort and Mako. The basic storyline follows the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale The Emperor's Nightingale. A cruel and overbearing Chinese emperor (Jagger) is given the present of a nightingale by a kindhearted kitchen mai (Hershey). Greedily, the emperor forsakes his pet in favor of a mechanical singing bird. Both bird and master nearly meet their Makers as a result of the Emperor's callous behavior. The Nightingale was originally presented as an episode of Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre. ~ Hal Erickson
