Wasn't there a Disney version in the early 1960s?
Does anyone remember a live-action version of this story from the early/mid 1960s? I'm fairly sure I watched it on Disney's Wonderful World of Color but my age was but a single digit so the memory may be flawed. It was the first movie that ever made me cry and it taught me the emotional power a movie can evoke.
