Two peasant children search for the mythical bluebird of happiness in this elaborate but ill-fated fantasy that is a remake of a 1940 flop (said to have killed the juvenile career of Shirley Temple), which in turn is a remake of a 1918 version. This version was hailed as the first collaborative film made between the US and the Soviet Union and featured an all-star cast. Lots of money went into the production but like its predecessors, it bombed.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It seems to be a contest over who can deliver the worst performance (I think Fonda wins, but it's a close call) as they all prance around bad sets in even worse costumes."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Gooey and stupid."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
