The Story of Little Mook (Die Geschichte Vom Kleinen Muck)
Germany's most beloved and successful children's film classic takes you into the magical settings of the Arabian Nights. Wolfgang Staudte's lavish production and special effects carried on the legacy of the Ufa studios in Babelsberg. In a small town, a hunchbacked old man is teased, taunted and chased by the local children. One day, he manages to hold them spellbound with a story - his own story: A little boy called Mook is banished from his home by evil relatives following the death of his father. In search of happiness and fortune, he goes off to live in the desert, where he meets a wondrous old woman. He becomes the owner of magic racing slippers and a wand with which to find hidden treasures. Convinced that he has found his fortune, Mook sets out to find employment at the Sultan's court. But once there, Mook's success evokes much envy among the courtiers, who involve him in intrigues and have him expelled from the palace.
