Voice Compare » Thief and the Cobbler » King Nod

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of King Nod with sound clips and images.
In the original version of The Thief and the Cobbler headed by Richard Williams, King Nod is voiced by Anthony Quayle. In the Majestic Films version (titled "The Princess and the Cobbler") headed by Fred Calvert and the Miramax version (titled "Arabian Knight") headed by the Weinstein Brothers, he is voiced by Clive Revill. A sample of Quayle's voice was retained in the latter two versions during the speech scene in the middle of the film.

Anthony sounds way more natural for this part.

Anthony Quayle's dialogue makes much more sense than Clive Revill's, I never understood how he was so desperate and said he'd do ANYTHING for the golden balls, and yet just laughs off Zigzag's request going all "Oh you're so silly Zigzag." That always was a wallbanger to me.

Anthony's makes much more sense, coming off as just a protective father, seeing that Zigzag is trying to manipulate him. I also like Zigzag's nonchalant response to King Nod. That made me laugh.

I do like Clive Revill, don't get me wrong. But the remade dialogue did not help his case at all, but then again barely anything in the Miramax cut makes any sense.

Anthony Quayle gets my vote, he just fits King Nod more.

Voted for Quayle per Richard Williams's original intent. His preformance was the more believable out of the two. Revill seems rather melodramatic here.
