    One of my favorite movies. Also our families. I too would like to thank Leo for his great work.

    Music is fantastic and the message is wonderful. Wish we could have more movies like this for our families.

    I say we film the 2 sequels that he has written. I will buy both.

    We watched this movie probably 50 times with our kids.

    "They ate Blue!"

    "Curiosity killed the cat.
    Well, I ain't a cat, let's go."

    "Bankers run banks."


    Lots of little quotes that stick in my memory from Rigoletto. It was one of my favorite Feature Films for Families movies that I grew up with. I also liked the the first Butter Cream Gang movie (hated the squeal); and Split Infinity.

    Rigoletto is such a sweet, wonderful movie! I love the message, that there is good in people, but we have to be willing to see deeper and care about them. Thank you, Leo Paur for your wonderful movie and your wonderful talents. I still enjoy this movie and the actors are superb.
