The Fabulous Baron Munchausen [aka Baron Prášil ] (1961)

The Fabulous Baron Munchausen [aka Baron Prášil ] (1961) Czechoslovakian animator Karel Zeman combines live action with puppets and animation to create a highly stylized picture about the outrageous lies of Baron Munchausen. Influenced by the engravings of Gustave Doré, in the tradition of Ray Harryhausen, Zeman’s fantasy world revels in a childlike delight and good humor that never succumbs to Disney realism. The result is an experience quite uncanny, since you are always aware that this is both real [actual actors] and unreal [irrational images]. Restored in a beautiful Blu-Ray by SECOND RUN, this is a “must” for all fans of animation.

In 1964, Donal Rusk Currey killed the oldest tree ever. To this day, there has still never been an older tree discovered. The tree was a Great Basin bristlecone pine, and Currey didn’t meant to kill it. It was an accident, and one he didn’t really understand the ramifications of until he started counting rings.
