Based on a Grimm fairy tale, the animated The Seven Ravens is the story of a young maiden whose brothers are placed under a curse. Turned into the ravens, the brothers can only be released from their spell by the girl -- who doesn't know how to pull this off. Complications ensue, culminating in the girl being condemned to the stake for witchcraft. Seven Ravens was produced in a stop-motion animation process by the Diehl Brothers, a German pair whose work was obviously inspired by the "Puppetoons" of George Pal. The film was distributed to theaters and TV in the U.S. by M&A Alexander.
