Is this the stop-motion one?
I remember as a kid that a film called The Happy Prince was on, and my mother recorded it for me on VHS. But, we no longer use those players, and I havent seen it in years but am desperate to.
No-one I know has heard of it, but I remember it being in stop motion, I think, and it had songs. I've seen bits of a cartoon version on youtube, but that's not the one I mean.
I'd just love to hear the songs again.
"Swallow, swallow, little swallow. Can you do one thing for me? Fly up there, so you can see... something... something..."
"Don't you understand, I must fly?! If I stay here, then I will die."
... But those are the lyrics circling round and round my head.
Heaven for climate; Hell for company.
