A Brief History of Corn
23 May 2004 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award for Documentary, was done in conjunction with the National Film Board of Canada to be shown throughout the Americas, particularly South and Central America. The animation holds up well, but the narration leaves something to be desired. I can hear the starting point of the, "Let's be real cute!" narration style that irritates far too often in the True Life Adventures series that began a handful of years later. Fascinating at times, but tends to drag toward the end.

This is on the Disney Treasures On he Front Lines set, which is phenomenal and well worth getting, if you're an animation fan. The two-disc set is most highly recommended.
