The cowboy bootmaker is so poor that even his shadow has holes in it. Trouble is, the bootmaker makes terrible boots. But then one night, when he's down to his last piece of leather, a miracle occurs. This Old West recasting of the classic "The Shoemaker and the Elves" is an uproarious enchantment. Full color.
