Fine Feathers

  • 1968 ----- color ----- 5 min ----- 16mm
  • In this cut-out color cartoon by film artist Evelyn Lambart, two quarrelsome birds get the urge to change their plumage. A blue jay wants to be decked out in the green of cedar, and a loon in the burnished red of oak leaves. There is a moral to the story. Neither bird reckoned on the consequences of vanity. Along comes a gust of wind and both learn to their consternation that their natural, well-anchored feathers provided much better protection.
