The Grimms were the subject of a [[HollywoodHistory highly fantasticated]] {{Musical}} {{Biopic}} in 1962, called ''The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm'', with Karlheinz Böhm as Jacob and Laurence Harvey as Wilhelm; the film won 1 [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]] (Costume Design) and was nominated for 3 more. In 1998, the brothers, played by Andy Henderson and Joerg Stadler, made an appearance in ''[[Film/EverAfter Ever After: A Cinderella Story]]'' (despite the film being a riff more on the Perrault than on the Grimm version of ""Literature/{{Cinderella}}"). In 2005, Creator/TerryGilliam made ''Film/TheBrothersGrimm'', a [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids decidedly unsettling reinterpretation]]; Heath Ledger and Matt Damon were the brethren in this outing. The Grimms in the form of Allen Smith and Millen Baird were deconstructed in the 2006 film ''Big Bad Wolves''.

'''Jacob Ludwig Carl''' and '''Wilhelm Carl Grimm''', known collectively as '''The Brothers Grimm''', were German linguists born in the late 18th century, who, in an effort to preserve Germany's heritage and promote cultural unity in a period of [[AllTheLittleGermanies political disunity]], collected a vast array of folk tales from their fellow Germans (mostly middle- and upper-class friends). The brothers eventually published these stories in the famous collection which they called ''Kinder- und Hausmärchen'' (''Children's and Household Tales''), but which is generally better known among English-speakers as ''Grimms' Fairy Tales''.
