I am now the extremely proud owner of my very own, "fully-restored" (no icky colorings and blurrings from the Encore! channel taping off of TV) DVD copy of
The Slipper and the Rose
and I couldn't be more ecstatic!!
It matters not to me that the cover, "FBI" (or whatever it is in Brazil) warning, or DVD menu are in Portuguese. It stills plays and sings in English in their original voices. And I love it! Any time I want. Oh. It is a blissful day. PLUS! The cover is not the typical one that you see on so many other DVD or VHS copies.
No, no. It's a picture from one of every female's favorite scene.
And if you are a (female) fan, you totally know why, don't you?!
That's it. I'm declaring the rest of the year Slipper and the Rose Year in which we shall quote the movie to our hearts' content, as well as burst out into songs and dancing from the film with no shame!
"Your face cracks rather easily."
"Yes, yes. Don't trouble yourself--I am acquainted with them."
"Well, of course he's returned! You get more senile every day."
"Kings never cheat. They adapt to circumstances."
They never end! Well, until the movie does. Which I'm going to get back to now.
