Lotte Reiniger's Hansel and Gretel

I am posting the Lotte Reiniger fairy tales courtesty of YouTube this week.  Today is Hansel and Gretel.   And if you watch at least the beginning, the children get lost--they are not abandoned--after wandering too far despite their mother's warning. 

Again, we can get Reiniger's The Adventures of Prince Achmed in North America.

The Adventures of Prince Achmed

And the Lotte Reiniger - Fairy Tales [DVD] [1922] pictured at the top of the post is available in the UK as a region 2 DVD.
