Before the advent of the LOTR and HP franchises, was a beautiful english-language, West Germany made movie released 1984. Called The NeverEnding story, it was based on a book by Michael Ende, and was directed by Wolfgang Peterson.

With its fab sets, make up and sfx, TNES was the most expensive film made that year outside of the USA and erstwhile Soviet Union. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a child I caught it on VHS tapes and it was perhaps my first brush with the genre of children's fantasy cinema. Introducing me to Atreyu and the Childlike Empress, it shaped my perception of silver screen fantasy and mystic for a long time. Must watch if you havent yet.

Cinema From The Point of View of Children: Wee Willie Winkie. Directed by John Ford.

During the dark economic years of the 1930s when America was struggling to get out of the grips of The Great Depression, the number one box office star was a little girl, Shirley Temple, literally the #1 box office draw in 1935, 1936, 1937 and 1938.

Temple's characters in the movies at this time when she was under 10 years of age were full of tap dancing and singing and would change the course of events in a story by turning the cold, the hard, and the criminal elements with her cuteness and charm.

In Wee Willie Winkie, director John Ford uses Temple to avoid a war in India between the British colonial powers and the local rebels. Based on the Rudyard Kipling story and featuring a large budget and elaborate sets for the time, and co-starring Victor McLaglen and Cesar Romero, C. Aubrey Smith and June Lang.

By today's standards, Shirley Temple films are too much 'good ship lollipop' for the youth market, but at the time, America in the 1930s, even adults were fascinated and charmed by her big screen persona and she helped the nation, through the soft propaganda of her films, to make the economic hard times and the impending war clouds a little easier to take.

The screenplay was by Ernest Pascal and Julien Josephson.

Cinematography by Arthur C. Miller. Film Editing by Walter Thompson.
The Oscar nominate Art Direction by William Darling and David Hall.
