Lotte Reiniger's Two Frog Princes

Today is I am sharing two Frog Prince films by Lotte Reiniger, done decades apart and one in color, the other not. Which do you prefer?

And a later one in color. Is it just me or are the black and whites somehow more magical? Although this one is quite excellent!

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.
