    This made for TV movie is the directorial debut of Julie Taymor (Titus, Frida) and based on Edgar Allen Poe’s Hop-Frog, a story about a dwarf forced to become a jester by a tyrannical king. You may recognize Michael J. Anderson, who plays Hopfrog, from Twin Peaks. The other characters wear bizarre masks and costumes. A pity there isn’t a better copy available but thanks Jon for making this available. I’ll bet whoever uploaded it to YouTube got it here.
