Rainbow Dance is another entertaining experimental Len Lye short
13 December 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Ranbow Dance is another great abstraction animated short by Len Lye. This time there's a silhouette of Rupert Doone dancing in front of a rainbow in the beginning. Doone plays tennis later on in the short. All this is combined in a collage of images of color and various money bills, coins, and press clippings. At the end is an announcement:"The Post Office Savings Bank puts a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for you. No deposit too small for the Post Office Savings Bank." The music is by Walter Leigh. Having seen most of these shorts on YouTube, I just can't get enough of these experimental shorts! I can't believe I stayed up all night just to see anything by Len Lye, who I haven't heard of until today when there was an item in the Cartoon Brew. Maybe, I'll look another Lye short up...
