Paris:  Editions Maisonneuve et Larose, 2004. ———. “The Devil’s Heater: On the ‘Contexts’ of a Tale.” Translated by Brunhilde Biebuyck. Perhaps 'Faerie Tale Theatre' did so well because it didn't bother trying to offer more “believable” versions of its stories — although it also didn't hurt that Duvall was able to line up talented stars and directors like Robin Williams, Paul Reubens (who played Pinocchio), Tim Burton, Francis Ford Coppola and pretty much everyone who starred on a sitcom during the mid '80s. 'Once Upon a Time' isn't the first series to send Snow White to the modern world.
