Gerda must rescue her friend Kay, who has been kidnapped by the Snow Queen. Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen.

One of the most popular Soviet animated films, translated into all the major languages and often shown around Christmas in some countries. In the US, an English dub was released in 1959. It was also Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki's favourite film.

The first video link above is HD, though it may be an unofficial upscale. The second is the original version on Soyuzmultfilm's channel. Both are at 25 frames per second (rather than the original frame rate of 24).
