About Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Belle (Paige O'Hara) is a thoughtful, imaginative girl who would rather read a book than flounce around her provincial town looking for a husband. Unluckily for her, local beefcake Gaston has decided that Belle would make the perfect wife simply because she's beautiful. When Belle's eccentric father Maurice (Rex Everhart) goes missing in the forest, Belle goes looking for him. When she finds him, he's a prisoner in an impressive ruined castle inhabited by an ill-tempered beast (Robby Benson), she agrees to take her father's place. But the beast may be gentler than he seems, and the enchanted objects of the castle, led by Lumiere the candelabra and Cogsworth the clock, are adamant that she take advantage of their hospitality.
