The 2nd stop-motion animated film in animation history
I had watched this 1930 French stop-motion animated film last night on YouTube, and I thought it was great film.
This film is also the second stop-motion animated film in animation history. The film is based on the old medieval stories of Reynard the Fox, and all the tricks he plays on the animals in King Lion's court, who were trying to bring to justice for his trickery; in which punishment is being hung. You know, I could clearly see the inspiration for Disney's version of "Robin Hood," and inspiration for the 2009 stop-motion film "Fantastic Mr. Fox."
Overall, I had really enjoy this film and it is now one of my favorite foreign animated films.
