"The Frogs Who Wanted a King "

From a reader. A pioneering puppet/animation film from Russian expat Wladyslaw Starewicz.

Made in 1922, supposedly for children, there is a strong political/moral theme throughout -

Man's age old desire to pass responsibility up the line to an higher political authority and the inevitable enslavement and death that decision entails.

The accompanying music, though possibly not original, is spooky and very cool.
