ONCE UPON A TUNE: RAPUNZEL (TV)

Summary

One in this weekly series that presents original musical productions, often satirical, tongue-in-cheek adaptations of classic fairy tales, or spoofs of current Broadway musicals. In this twentieth-century version of the Grimm fairy tale, a young woman, who believes she is Rapunzel, runs away from home after finding her "prince." The "prince" is really a soldier named Phil. The affluent young woman's female guardian is dismayed that the girl may marry below her station, so she calls out the F.B.I. and the National Guard to assist her in finding "Rapunzel." Meanwhile, Phil and a friend also search for "Rapunzel," who is hiding out at the Ostrich Club where Phil's sister works. During this program the following songs are performed: "I Get Carried Away"; "Some Enchanted Evening"; "Someday I'll Find You"; "If I Were a Bell"; "Just One of Those Things"; "Friendship"; and "This is Love." Commercials deleted.
