Does Anyone Know??

Post by arlene » Thu Dec 13, 2007 5:57 pm

Back in the 70's (I think), there was an amimated short movie about a planet, a young boy, his father and it was absolutely superb. I remember an "orb" was in it. Does anyone know which short/movie this was. It was shown on television in Canada. Thank you.

Are you thinking of The Point http://www.uk.imdb.com/title/tt0067595/, which had music by Harry Nilsson and featured the voices of Ringo Starr and Dustin Hoffman? It's the first one that sprang to mind.

thank you, but it's not The Point. Very similar, it could have been from the late 60's as well. A phenomonal
sci fi fantasy animation, I only saw once, but have never been able to get out of my head. Is there a web site
that can direct me to sci fi fantasy shorts/animations? so I can search from the 60's or 70's or perhaps it's
not listed anywhere :cry:
Again, planets, a father (maybe a king) and a son.
Thank you.

Then maybe it is La Planete Sauvage (AKA Fantastic Planet) by René Laloux. http://www.uk.imdb.com/title/tt0070544/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantastic_Planet

Glad to be of help. You can get it from Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/red ... B000FOT6YM. And don't be shy about visiting the forum or the main site. We try to keep it as up-to-date as possible and of course there are all those fabulous competitions, not to mention the movies over on sci-fi-london.tv. Hope to see you at the Festival in May.
