I saw a film years ago. Maybe mid 90s but it looked old at the time so maybe 60s or even 50s. Upon searching for clues... the film sets of The Band Wagon seem quite similar to some of the “magical kingdom” sets in this film. Backdrop art work with stage sets built in front of them.
The time period of the film was hard to pinpoint. It had a “Snow White” feel to it age wise. The man had a cloak and the women wore skirts and braided hair etc...
It was in English but I believe was set somewhere European. Possibly Switzerland (that would match the outfits and building).
The main protagonist was a male traveller (nomad, wanderer) who, exhausted, comes across a sanctuary. It is a house that is full of women. There is a sort of matriarch figure and 10 or more younger women. The style of the house is very much like a log cabin chalet in the alps.
I remember the young women being very flirtatious towards the man. But the older matriarch was wary about him and didn’t want him around.
They offer him food and rest. Actually... I think they were reluctant to provide refuge for him but he was able to convince them by performing tricks for them (I believe he used his invisible cloak to hide in order to perform the tricks).
The man suspects something odd is happening at night because of noises or something. I think maybe he is given a sleeping potion or something for a few nights.
At night the man hides under a blanket that makes him invisible (I think?!?) and sneaks out and follows the women who all disappear down a door and into a magical kingdom type place. IIRC there is dancing and music and stuff.
I think there is a fountain or a pagoda type structure in the magical place too.
I think he gets discovered in the end but I’m not sure.
It’s a live action film. With a similar film look/quality to films like The Sound of Music or Mary Poppins. Sort of Technicolor style film.
Hope someone can recall what it is. I only ever watched this movie once and was about 10 at the time so I’m struggling to remember any fine details but the more I write the more is coming back to me. If I remember any more I’ll edit the question.
