      Audience Member Not great...I guess I didn't know what to expect. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Dreadful musicalized television made version of the classic story. Burl Ives isn?t too bad but the rest of the cast is dreadful. There aren?t even any good songs. Melodramatic mush that did not hold my interest. Some of the scenery is nice, but that hardly makes a movie work. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member 38/100.
