This half-hour film directed by Orson Welles for an anthology tv series was shelved and shown during the summer. I remember watching it. It was a revelation. Welles used stills and stop-motion to tell a very witty take on "The Fountain of Youth." Within a year, commercials were copying its technique. I'd love to see this one again. It impressed me to no end as a teenager, who had just heard of Orson Welles. Of course, the yoo-yoos in charge of the networks didn't give him anything else. The credit for this being made goes to Desi Arnaz, who had the power to get it made, but it was still axed from the intended series. Welles and Arnaz--true visionaries.
