"Ayşecik ve Sihirli Cüceler Rüyalar Ülkesinde" ("Little Ayşe and the Magic Dwarfs in the Land of Dreams") is a 1971 film by Turkish film director Tunç Başaran, an uncredited and very close adaptation by Hamdi Değirmencioğlu of L. Frank Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". The film was produced by Özdemir Birsel for Hisar (Citadel) Film.

One of the late films of a cycle of nearly forty films featuring Zeynep Değirmencioğlu (b. 1954; ret. 1974) as Ayşecik, many of which, like this one, thrust her into uncredited adaptations of famous stories, for example, "Sinderella Külkedisi" (Cinderella) (Süreyya Duru, 1971), "Hayat Sevince Güzel" [literally, "Loving makes life beautiful"] (Pollyanna) (Temel Gürsu, 1971), and the film whose success inspired this one, "Pamuk Prenses ve 7 Cüceler" (Snow White, or more literally "Cotton Princess") (Ertem Göreç, 1970).

Plot summary

In this film, Ayşecik lives with her parents and a dog named Banjü. An animated sequence depicts her house taken by a tornado, where she crushes a witch who leaves behind silver shoes. Given a kiss by a good witch, and promised aid by seven dwarfs (Ferdi Celep, Tayar Yıldız, Hari Turyut, Mehmet Aşık, Salih Çarpar, Ali Abbas Bayer, and Harun Atalay), she sets out to find the Great Wizard Keskin Zeka (Cemâl Konca). Through the grasslands and forests, she encounters Korkuluk (Süleyman Turan), Teneke Korudam (Metin Serezli), and Korkak Aslan (Ali Şen), the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Cowardly Lion, and a town of china dolls, featuring twins Semra and Seda. Keşkin Zeka demands that they kill the Wicked Witch (Kötü Cadı) of the South (Suna Selen) in order to receive their wishes. Ayşecik and the Lion are imprisoned after the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman are torn apart by the witch's soldiers.

After they defeat the Witch, Keşkin Zeka admits to being a fraud, delivers trinkets to Ayşecik's friends, and leaves her behind in his balloon escape, so they set off on their journey again, meeting again the china dolls, the hammer-wielding cavemen (loosely based on Baum's Hammerheads) and then start to dance, then Aysecik ends up home.
