I had seen this version of Beauty and the Beast on a PBS TV channel approximately 10 years ago, and I had taped it at that time. The tape today is just awful, so I was thrilled to locate a fully restored CD. It is in French but has subtitles in English. The black & white version is gloomy, and this makes it spookier...as it should be. It's a must for those who love the classics and fairy tales that are not animated!
