Based on the classic fairytale by Charles Perrault, this 1988 Cannon Group production of Puss in Boots is a musical movie-tale that spurns self-imposed limitations and proposes that anything is possible with a little imagination and a firm belief in oneself. The story opens with a dying miller bequeathing his cat Puss to his youngest son Corin (Jason Connery). Corin sets out with his paltry inheritance to make a new life for himself, but is quickly besieged by strange visions of his cat Puss (Academy Award-winner Christopher Walken) taking on human form. Puss promises that all will be well if Corin will just buy him a pair of boots and, despite many misgivings, Corin buys Puss the boots and finds that they somehow enable Puss to maintain human form. The clever Puss in Boots devises a plan to ensure his master's lasting happiness, gaining access to the King (Yossi Graber) where he fancifully describes Corin as the wealthy and noble Marquis of Carabas. When the King summons the Marquis of Carabas, Corin falls in love with the Princess Vera (Carmela Marner) and struggles to somehow live up to his new title in order to win her hand in marriage. While a relatively low-budget production, the songs and dances make this version of the classic Puss in Boots fun for the entire family. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi
