Animated Uncle Sam saves US from greed etc.
21 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this many many times c.1970-71, at a film company I worked for. I have never forgotten some of the images, especially Uncle Sam sitting on a log kicking his feet. There doesn't seem to be a DVD anywhere. I can't understand this. This little film should be showing everywhere, especially now that we need such a good Uncle Sam. Victor Haboush, the wonderful artist, had a sly, multi-level sense of humor. Starts off with Uncle Sam and the Statue of Liberty bound in chains, prisoners of American greed and totalitarianism, war mongering and wall streetism, at some point in the future. (The film was made in 1970, perhaps they were living c. 2010?) Amazing how prescient some "old" films can be. I was at the time more taken with the music (I believe it was our national anthem, as sung in Lithuanian -- a bizarre touch) and the visuals -- reminiscent of the political cartoons in Harper's Weekly in the 1870s mixed with some Krazy Kat coloration and children's book sweetness, than with the political message. But the movie is undoubtedly more telling now than before -- the scandals of banks, the rants of tea-partiers, the continuing wars, the anti-immigrant demonstrations, etc., etc. would have undoubtedly seemed just a little unreal in 1970, although the dangers have always been with us. Anybody have an idea how to get a copy of the film?
