Mighty Quinn's rating of the film The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

My first exposure to this beautiful poem and I couldn't have asked for a better rendition. Orson Welles does a great job narrating and the music that accomanies the Gustave Dore's engravings, fits wonderfully. Larry Jordan's animation was sparse and unobtrusive, which is a pity becuase I enjoy his style and would have liked to have seen more animation than just colour changes, resulting in a very pretty slideshow.
