FI12844.145 Le Merle 7A 119 feet. This is a dupe neg of the very first Le Merle test with a hand drawn bird. The song was too complex to animate in this way. So the idea was dropped and finally simple cut-outs was the solution. On this roll, the hand-drawn bird is followed by some animated cut-outs, obviously tests. These tests are interesting.
