Thought this might interest some. Catherine Ornstein, author of Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked, had an op-ed in Mon. March 3, 2003 NYT. Title was "Fairy Tales and a Dose of Reality." It discusses the "fairy tale wedding" ideal and the recent spate of reality TV shoes, Joe Millionaire, The Bachelorette, Race to the Alter, etc. Also, discusses pre-Disney tales, esp. the contes de fee, and Disney versions.
