Directed by: Roadside Theater
Running Time: 12:00
Roadside Theater produced these mountain folk tales, illustrated with pastel drawings by Angelyn DeBord. Told in mountain dialect and accompanied by fiddle, banjo, and guitar, these stories are entertaining for young and old alike. "Fat and Lean" is a ghost story with a comic twist. "Little Fish Story" is a tale from the Smoky Mountains about friendship and the origin of rainbows. "The Big Toe" is the story of a little boy's encounter with a big, hairy goblin whose toe looked too much like a potato. Three Mountain Tales was originally produced as a filmstrip, but is now available exclusively in video. It is suitable for use with all ages.
"Authentically told with verve enlivened by jaunty fiddle, banjo, and harmonica accompaniment....delightful interpretation of gems from America's oral tradition." -Media and Methods
"Three Mountain Tales is pure magic." - The Kentucky Post
