Oscar nominee from the year of my birth.
1 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, most accurately titled, was released the year I was born. About a man who plays the violin with great enthusiasm, if with limited ability. Charming and engaging, with a good story and dialogue to go along with a limited animation style. Ernest Pintoff had a light touch with comedy and made some very delightful shorts in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I wish he'd done more of them. Well worth tracking down. Most recommended.
