Faerie Tale Theatre - The Princess And The Pea (1982)
Starring: Shelley Duvall, Liza Minnelli Director: Tony Bill

THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA is one of the all-time great FAERIE TALE THEATRE
episodes. Featuring a talented cast and brilliant costumes and sets, it's
totally adorable.

Prince Richard (Tom Conti) leads a boring and eventless life under the thumb
of his controlling mother Queen Veronica (Beatrice Straight). Until, one
stormy night, in whirls the vivacious Princess Alecia (Liza Minnelli). But
is she really a princess? Queen Veronica is skeptical, so employs a method
to test her royalty: she places a tiny pea under 20 mattresses and quilts.
If Alecia can feel the pea it will prove beyond any doubt her royal blood.

Will Alecia pass the test? And if she does, will she choose to marry
Richard? You'll find out in THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA. Co-starring Jane Alden
and Nancy Allen.

Available from Amazon.
