Sleeping Beauty (1959)

It’s got its bad archaic bits (a 16-year old getting non-consensually kissed by and married to a guy who looks like he’s 30, for one) and some sleepy ones too (the entire sequence in the forest) but the fairies’ surprisingly strong role in the action climax as well as their comedic chemistry (shout out to the drunk bard too) help counter them. The excellent villain and underlying thread of dramatic irony in the dual identities of the “stranger” and the “peasant girl” are nice additions as well.
