Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

An Italian cartoon based on an original fairy tale, inspired by Rossini’s lively overture, La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie), and by the personality of a pet magpie that had lived in the Gianini home for many years. The cartoon depicts a pageant of medieval knights whose grand procession is reduced to havoc by one insolent bird who would rather steal crowns than dodge arrows. No commentary, music only.
