English Summary:

The Blue Bird is a 1976 American-Soviet children's fantasy film directed by George Cukor. The screenplay by Hugh Whitemore, Alfred Hayes, and Aleksei Kapler is based on L'Oiseau bleu by Maurice Maeterlinck. It was the fifth screen adaptation of the play, following two silent films, the studio's 1940 version starring Shirley Temple, and a 1970 animated feature. Unlike prior adaptations, the film received little-to-no critical praise and was a flop at the box office.

Mytyl and her brother Tyltyl are peasant children who are led on a quest for the Blue Bird of Happiness by the Queen of Light, who gives them a hat with a magic diamond that allows them to call forth the souls of all things, both living and inanimate. On their journey, they are accompanied by the human personifications of a dog, a cat, water, sugar, bread, milk, light, fire, and the like. They visit the kingdoms of the past and future and the queendoms of night and luxury, at each place absorbing more wisdom. Eventually they discover the blue bird they've been seeking has been in their own backyard all along.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Maurice Maeterlinck A kék madár című népszerű művéből készült ez a megható filmtörténeti klasszikus, mely az egész család számára feledhetetlen élményt nyújt. A George Cukor (My Fair Lady) által rendezett alkotás különlegessége, hogy főszereplői, Elizabeth Taylor és Jane Fonda közül előbbi több szerepben is látható. A történet főhőse egy favágó két gyermeke, akik nagy szegénységben élnek. Karácsony éjszakáján megjelenik álmukban egy tündér, aki arra biztatja őket, hogy keressék meg a Boldogság Kék Madarát. A kisfiú és a kislány útra kel, és számtalan kalandjuk során még barátokra is lelnek. Hosszú utazásuk során találkoznak rég nem látott nagyszüleikkel is, és megtapasztalják az igazi boldogságot.
