From Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Hitchcockian suspenser about Moreau tracking down and killing the quintet of men who accidentally killed her husband on their wedding day. Exciting, entertaining homage to The Master, right down to the Bernard Herrmann score (although Truffaut omitted the twist ending of the novel by William Irish, aka Cornell Woolrich).

Synopsis: Jean Cocteau's spellbinding version of the French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Only a rose -- that was all Beauty asked for when her father journeyed to the city. But her harmless request has unexpected consequences when Beauty's father plucks the flower from a garden belonging to an enchanted Beast. Now the fearsome creature wants the father's life -- or the life of one of his daughters. Despite her father's protests, Beauty determines to go in his place. When she arrives at the Beast's palace, she discovers, to her amazement, a blazing fire, silver platters heaped with food, and the softest downy bed. And she learns that the Beast is kind and will not harm her. Still, she reacts with horror when he asks her to marry him. Beauty knows she can never do that... can she?

The Home Vision Cinema VHS version is full-length, newly remastered with new subtitles. The print used is from the Janus film collection.

Beauty and the Beast is one of the all-time great movie fantasies, and one of the most gorgeous pictures ever made. It was the first feature film by French director Jean Cocteau, a writer, poet, and painter with ties to the surrealists. (In fact, his first film, The Blood of a Poet, was delayed after the scandal caused by L'Age D'Or, made by his fellow surrealists Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali.) The haunting, surreal visuals (candelabra made of human hands, for example) and a sensitive performance by Jean Marais as the Beast imbue the film with an indelible, mythical power.
