THE DOOR IN THE WALL

by | Read by Roger Rees

Children Ages 8+ • 2.33 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1949

De Angeli's classic was written for middle-grade readers, but this is a children's story the whole family can enjoy because the unabridged production is simple, elegant, robust and finely crafted in every way. Actor Roger Rees is expressive but never overly emotional. (That's a good choice--a sentimental reading would turn off some youngsters and most adults.) Spare, tasteful sound effects (church bells, chant) and touches of specially composed music give an immediate feel of the medieval time and setting. Well-conceived, well-produced, well-performed.
