Paul Grimault's THE KING AND THE MOCKINGBIRD

Though it has been a favorite of French audiences for 35 years, The King and the Mockingbird has long been unavailable in the U.S. due to rights issues! Based on a Hans Christian Andersen story, Mockingbird follows a chimney sweep and shepherdess on the run from a tyrannical king. A masterpiece of traditional hand-drawn cell animation, Mockingbird is credited by Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata as inspiring the creation of their own studio, the now world-famous Studio Ghibli. Paul Grimault started work on Mockingbird in 1947, when it was planned to be France's first animated feature. A dispute stopped production, however and it was released unfinished by its producer, without Grimault's permission. Grimault spent 10 years getting the rights back and another 20 years raising the money to finish the film.
