Inhalt

The Devil′s Three Golden Hairs

Based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm: Jakob is a poor farmer′s boy. Because of his timidity that even makes him run away from mice, he is often ridiculed by other people. Even the king is ill-disposed towards him. One day he sends Jakob to the devil to rob him of three golden hairs. This is supposed to be Jakob′s certain death. But naïve Jakob gets going and on his way even promises the oppressed subjects of the king to ask the devil for a way out of their misery. When he arrives in hell, he actually manages to get three golden hairs after disguising himself as the absent devil′s wife to cheat the devil. With the three hairs, he returns to the castle as a hero and marries the beautiful princess.
