Fun Size Review: The Star Prince (1918)

Madeline Brandeis was just twenty when she wrote and directed this celestial fairy tale with a child cast. The result is a fantasy that is a little rough around the edges but nevertheless extremely impressive for such a young and inexperienced filmmaker.

There’s humor, there are special effects, there’s even a brief stop-motion sequence. Quite enjoyable, especially for fans of the fantasy genre.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The Star Prince learns a lesson and wins the princess.

If it were a dessert it would be: Homemade Pudding Cups. It’s good to be a kid sometimes.

Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray as part of Flicker Alley’s Early Women Filmmakers: An International Anthology.
