A delightful spoof on modern art, which turns out to be prophetic.
26 July 2001 | by (Goleta, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful short subject from 1960. If memory serves me there is no dialogue, and there is some mystery to what the film is leading up to, but everything becomes abundantly clear by the surprise ending.

A nicely paced film. Excellent cinemaphotography using a very scenic area as background. I believe this film won an Oscar in 1960, which was well deserved.

If anyone knows how to get a copy of this film, preferably in a contemporary format, PLEASE let me know.
