Storyline

Dislocation in time, time signatures, time as a philosophical concept, and slavery to time are some of the themes touched upon in this nine-minute, experimental film, which was written, directed, and produced by Jim Henson-and starred Jim Henson! Screened for the first time at the Museum of Modern Art in May of 1965, Time Piece enjoyed an eighteen-month run at one Manhattan movie theater and was nominated for an Academy Award for outstanding short subject.

Trivia

Although this experimental film was made before Jim Henson committed his career to The Muppets (and related animatronic/puppet characters), it features the talents of two collaborators who would stay with Henson for the next 25+ years: Jerry Juhl, who plays the bartender, would go on to write or co-write most of the Muppet TV shows and films; and muppeteer Frank Oz (an early credit using his real surname of Oznowicz), who plays the messenger boy.

This is a neat little film.
16 November 2001 | by (Portland Oregon) – See all my reviews

This is a neat little film that I believe won the Academy Award for best live action short film in 1965. It is a crazy piece about the effect that time keeping have on us all. There is a lot of stop action and editing. Don't miss the dancing naked chicken!
