Faerie Tale Theatre: “Rumplestiltskin” (1982)

Following in the footsteps of the first episode, “Rumplestiltskin” has the same charmingly ornate sets and costumes that defined the show’s visual identity, not to mention the same light, silly sense of humor and semi-meta narrative winks that delighted my generation. Here, host and creator Shelley Duvall does triple duty as leading lady, bringing her singular and immensely charming presence to the proceedings (which luckily distract from Herve Villechaize’s stiff performance as the titular antagonist).
