LE ROMAN DE RENARD (The Tale of the Fox) (1941) * with hard-encoded English subtitles *

The Tale of the Fox was stop-motion animation pioneer Ladislas Starevich's first fully animated feature film. It is based on the tales of Renard the Fox. Although the animation was finished in Paris after an 18-month period (1929-1930), there were major problems with adding a soundtrack to the film. Finally, funding was given for a German soundtrack by the National Socialist regime (Goethe himself had written a classic version of the Renard legend) and this version had its premiere in Berlin in April 1937.  Released eight months before Disney's Snow White, it is the world's sixth-ever animated feature film (and the second to use puppet animation, following The New Gulliver from the USSR). The film was released in France with a French language soundtrack in 1941.


DVD-R is in French with hard-encoded English subtitles. Approx. 63 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
