Storyline

Three interlocking tales of damsels in distress. An urban scene: a man sees a woman fall off the roof of the neighboring apartment building. A Western scene: a cowboy hears a woman tied to the railroad tracks and an approaching train. And a fantasy scene: seven dwarfs, reading the tale of Snow White, sense a witch passing by with a poison apple. Each races to save their respective "miss" (and sometimes get involved with the stories of the others); each runs into a staggering number of obstacles along the way (including a steadily dwindling supply of dwarves). Who will succeed? Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

There's nothing quite like a Paul Driessen animated short!

Some animators have a very distinctive look or style to their work that makes them unmistakable with anyone else's work. Tex Avery is one-while early Tex Avery can sometimes be generic, mostly his work is quite recognizable. Paul Driessen is another animator whose style is immediately and clearly marked as his. Character design is one feature that is a dead giveaway to Driessen.

This particular short, nominated for an Academy Award, is typically Driessen in approach, style, tone and substance. Darkly funny and occasionally unsettling, this has a few running gags and a sub-plot that ties the three separate story lines together rather effectively. Filled with tons of allusions to fairy tales and quite charming in a somewhat twisted sort of way. Not great Driessen, but very good nonetheless. Recommended.
