  • Tom Thumb is a 1958 fantasy-musical film directed by George Pal and released by MGM. It was based on the fairy tale of the same name. The film is about a tiny man who manages to outwit two thieves determined to make a fortune from him. It starred Russ Tamblyn in the title role, with a largely British supporting cast, including Bernard Miles and Jessie Matthews as Tom Thumb's adoptive parents, and comic actors Terry-Thomas and Peter Sellers as the villainous duo who try to exploit the tiny hero for profit. Director Pal worked with cinematographer Georges Périnal, animators Wah Chang and Gene Warren, art director Elliot Scott and special effects artist Tom Howard to create the animated and fantasy sequences. Ken Jones wrote the music and Peggy Lee wrote the songs. The film is referenced in The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm and Pinkeltje. The film is also featured in That's Dancing! The filming locations for the movie were in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA and London, England. Wikipedia
