The Cat Came Back

A charming National Film Board (of Canada) short. Seven-and-a-half minutes long. The first time my husband and I watched this - big and beautiful on a movie theatre screen - we giggled. A lot.

Produced in 1988, it and many other films may now be enjoyed free on the NFB's website.

Too bad about the prominent logo in the bottom right of the screen - and that the flash viewer provided is wider than standard blog templates. (I've changed the width from 516 to 408 pixels in the HTML code, but it isn't clear how much distortion has resulted.)

Someone's drawn my attention to the fact that a legal page on the Film Board's website contains a bizarre declaration about who is permitted to link to the site. Ah, government bureaucrats. They don't really get the Internet yet, do they?
