Beauty and the Beast (1982)

Film details


A version of the classic tale. Floreat is sick but her over-protective millionaire-father and his doctors cannot cure her. She dreams of being visited by a monstrous beast. Only when the beast captures her and gently tends her in its cave does she learn that it is love, and not money that counts. But her father is not so sure.
