Norman McLaren was a very prolific Canadian animator who was born in
the UK. Most of his films would be described as 'arty' and are pretty

films on various DVD collections and I like these sorts of shorts--and
was thrilled to see a seven disk set of his work. This particular short
is from the first disk.

the backgrounds some hastily scrawled white painted shapes appear and
move about and change rapidly. It's all weird and looks like something
Dali, Jean Coctea and Andy Warhol would have loved but he average
person would have said reminds them of someone on LSD. Curious and
odd...and I give it a 3 because at least I liked the backgrounds...a
