I mentioned THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED earlier on a post of favorite animated films, but I thought I'd add another post highlighting more stills from this classic silent film masterpiece. I saw the film (on TCM) a while back and was absolutely flabbergasted. I'd had no knowledge of early animation (except Disney), had no idea of the superb quality of work being done then, especially by the brilliant Lotte Reiniger.(PRINCE ACHMED is painstakingly done in cut-paper silhouette.) Like many others, I'd always thought that Disney's excellent SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS was the first full length animated feature.
