Polychrome Fantasy (1935)

*** (out of 4)

This early film from Norman McLaren isn't going to turn anyone onto him as a filmmaker but I thought it was a good short for what it was. It basically mixes music, animation and live action, which is something the filmmaker would do throughout his career. We've basically got four women dancing at the bottom of the screen while at the top we're treated to various animated scenes. The best way to describe these scenes is to compare them to a tree in the fall as all of the leaves are changing colors. McLaren's films were experimental to say the least so they're not going to appeal to everyone and that's certainly true with this short. While there's nothing excellent here I still found it to be entertaining and I especially liked the way the animation was used.
