A fantasy/musical re-imagining of the life of the great Danish writer of children's stories.
Expelled from his village for distracting the local children from their studies, he travels to Copenhagen, where he falls under the spell of a glamorous opera diva.

The producer was the legendary Samuel Goldwyn, who labored for years to create a film worthy of the Danish fabulist, commissioning script after script, none of which satisfied him.
The writer who finally produced a screenplay that pleased Goldwyn was Pulitzer Prize winner Moss Hart, of the famed Broadway hit-making team of Kaufman and Hart, best known for Goldwyn was less interested in Andersen the man than in Andersen the storyteller; so Hart's script adopted the clever convention of reimagining Andersen's life as one of his own stories.
A disclaimer at the opening of the film warns that none of it is true.
This liberated the filmmakers to do whatever they wished.
During production, Goldwyn promoted the film by inviting the great CBS newsman Edward R.
Murrow behind the scenes for an episode of his "See It Now" program.
Long before the era of "electronic press kits", Goldwyn created his own on live TV.
(Sadly, no recording seems to have survived.) He also invited photographers from top publications to shoot one of the film's ballet sequences, and he arranged promotional appearances on the TV show hosted by Dinah Shore. The film left such fond memories that, when ABC first showed it on TV in 1966, they decided not to trim it to fit a two-hour time slot, with commercials.
