Just a little (or not so little) film from German animator Lotte Reiniger (1899-1981). Silhouette animation isn't something that's often done at all, but it's done beautifully here. And I have to say that the evil nobleman does do things with style up til his inevitable bad end.

Belinda was saved and the hero of the hour was the little chimney sweep :-)

That was very well done - you're right that the silhouettes were close to perfect.

Gotta love the chimney sweep. :)

Yeah, I saw stills of the lady's work in a book and had to check out her animation.
