Synopsis

As different from the usual Hollywood vehicle as Cinderella's coach is from the Super Chief, 'The Enchanted Forest,' which arrived at the Victoria on Saturday, is a unique addition to the Christmas film scene. For, while this pastoral fantasy about a hermit who prefers the serene company of the woods and its denizens to the world outside, may not come off for adults, youngsters should find it as welcome as Santa Claus. But like Cinderella's equipage, 'The Enchanted Forest' is geared for leisurely comfort and not for speed....The story, dressed in the rich hues of Cinecolor, has the simplicity of a bedtime tale. Old John, the hermit, has been communing with nature in the sylvan fastness of a California redwood grove for so long that he is linguistically in rapport with such animals as a crow, an eagle, a frog, a dog and a puma. Saving the forest owners' grandson from a raging stream after a trainwreck, Old John raises the infant to childhood. And it is only after a series of melodramatic developments... that the youngster rejoins his bereaved mother and Old John is assured that his beloved forest will remain primeval. Harry Davenport plays Old John simply and gracefully [and other cast members] turn in sympathetic and competent performances. If the trip through this forest is not altogether enchanting, it is, at least, unhurried and pleasant. (The New York Times, December 17, 1945)
