This fantasy animated feature—based on the children’s novel The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle—follows the journey of the world’s last remaining unicorn as she sets out to discover what devastated the rest of her kind. Along her quest, the Unicorn (Mia Farrow) is captured and put on display in Mommy Fortuna’s Midnight Carnival. While in captivity, she is befriended by Schmendrick (Alan Arkin)—a sweet but incompetent magician employed by Mommy Fortuna (Angela Lansbury). Once Schmendrick learns of the Unicorn’s quest, he is compelled to help her escape and continue on to the seaside castle of King Haggard (Christopher Lee), whom all suspect is responsible—along with the terrifying Red Bull—for the disappearance of the world’s unicorns. Jeff Bridges, Tammy Grimes, and Robert Kline also add their vocal talent to this animated cult classic. The film’s original soundtrack was scored by songwriter/composer Jimmy Webb and performed by the band America.
