The Hare and the Tortoise, a classic of Aesop’s fables, is brought to the screen in live-action with real animals! An owl, a rooster, a raccoon, a fox, a goose, a tortoise and a hare are all here, recreating the story in a lively and fun way. Made the in the 1940s, the film ensconces audiences in the warmth and wholesomeness that was only possible in an earlier time. Each live-action animal is a character in the classic contest of speed: the owl is the referee of the race, and fox creates the race course, the goose gossips, and the raccoon tries to wake up the hare so he won’t lose the race. The Hare and the Tortoise is a timeless fairy tale and this vintage film does it justice.
