FI12796.011 35 mm.“INTERESTING TESTS AND DISCARD OF CHAIRY TALE” A total length of 424 feet. This is IMPORTANT material as follows: 1) First SFA Tests 2) Alternate shots 3) Scratched effects 4) Bowing sequence for ending of film. It is important because there is much that is brilliant and there are many ideas in here that could be followed up. The most interesting to me are the scratched effects. And that was the inspiration for the use of etching in the Whale Story Sequence in my film THE PASSERBY. Although though Caroline Leaf’s scratching goes off on a different direction from McLaren.
