Hans Fischerkoesen’s “The Silly Goose” Part One

With great studios like Disney, Warner Bros and Fleischer, it’s easy to think that the best animation in the golden age came just from the USA. But that isn’t true. Check out this astounding German film from 1944. Look at how the city street moves! How did they do that without computers?! This film is a marvel!

2HC Fave Films Part V!

As the summer draws to a close, (except here in LA, where it just stretches on and on) it felt right to post this lazy-summer-esque film, “Weather-Beaten Melody,” directed by Hans Fischerkoesen way back in 1942.

Even now this film is a technical wonder, utilizing multiplane technology and subtle rotoscoping with a proficiency I don’t recall seeing in any other films. For a hand-drawn film it’s such an incredibly detailed and dimensional world.

I also like the simple story, and the general cheeriness of the whole thing. It’s a bit old-fashioned in a way that I find refreshing.

So kick off your sandals, take a sip of ice-cold lemonade and enjoy the show!
