Product Description

To encounter the work of Grant Munro is to discover an artist of inimitable talent and charm. A combination of Buster Keaton, Chuck Jones, Gene Kelly and Felix the Cat, Munro is truly one of a kind. He collaborated with legendary animator Norman McLaren on some of their best-known work, including the amazing pixilated masterpiece Neighbours (1953's Oscar(R) winner for Best Short Film). A special treat is two never-completed Munro/McLaren shorts, "Six and Seven Eights" and "On the Farm," along with Munro classics like "Three Blind Mice," "Two Bagatelles," "Christmas Cracker," "Canon," "Toys" and "The Animal Movie." Also included are Munro's hilarious work in live-action films including "The Ballot-o-Maniac," "Ashes of Doom" and "Boo Hoo."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for any film collector April 7, 2004
By J
The cover of this DVD is bang on - "to encounter the work of Grant Munro is to discover an artist of inimitable talent and charm." Watching the Oscar winner "Neighbors" is worth the cost of this DVD alone. Combined with the fantastic audio commentary, this is a rare gem indeed.
Combined with the other amazing features, including the gem "Boo Hoo" I was spellbound by the work of this amazing artist.
You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Delight! January 10, 2007
Verified Purchase
Get it not only for the Oscar winning 'Neighbours' but also for the other delightful and witty animated films. And don't miss the directors commentary - sometimes it's a little short (Grant doesn't speak unless he has something to say) but the tale of the dancer and the bottle of gin is priceless!

Enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Look Elsewhere first December 22, 2006
Anyone with a cursory interest should first look to the two disc Norman McLaren set available from the same DVD company as part of the "Milestone Collection." In it you will find "Neighbors," which appears here, as well as a variety of other much better films. Munro was sort of McLaren's friend and collaborator, and this DVD set is perhaps best looked at as a nice... supplement to the McLaren DVD's, as most of the material of note on here was actually directed by McLaren with Munro acting as an assistant/star. The big contribution Munro made, however, that makes the DVD worth seeing, is the short film "Toys," in which children watch a toy store window display, but soon the army men come to life and the G.I. Joes act out a very grisly realistic battle with explosions and great stop motion by Munro- making a very nice point about the sort of toys boys play with while elsewhere men are being killed senselessly, etc. It's suprising the drama that Munro got out of those action figures. Anyway, certainly not worth the money unless you're building an extensive Film Board of Canada DVD collection.
