The Frogs Who Wanted a King

Les grenouilles qui demandent un roi

Directed by Wladyslaw Starewicz
France, 1923
Animation, Comedy, Fantasy


Starewicz re-animated hundreds of real, albeit dead, frogs to make the chorus line in this lively musical. The spectacle and intricacy of this all singing, all dancing recreation of the old fable The Frogs Who Wanted A King make it fascinating (if a little macabre) fun.
