Jack and the Beanstalk is a 1967 live-action/animated-hybrid musical-themed telefilm that was produced and directed by and starred Gene Kelly. It was executive produced by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. It is a retelling of the popular fairy tale that mixes both live action and animation.
The adventure begins when Jack (Bobby Riha) trades his cow for some magic beans from peddler Jeremy Keen (Gene Kelly). The beans sprout a beanstalk high into the clouds, and Jack and Jeremy climb it to discover a giant (voiced by Ted Cassidy), a goose that lays golden eggs, and Princess Serena (voiced by Janet Waldo and sung by Marni Nixon) who is trapped in a harp by a magic spell and can only be released by a kiss.
