here is but a brief look at the films of George Pal.
For a more in depth look I recommend "The Films of George Pal" by Gail Morgan Hickman
Mr. Hickman interviewed Pal regarding all of his feature films.
|For many years,
people complained about the "Japser" Puppetoons, calling them (with some
justification) racist. Pal eventually came to believe that the little
films would never again find their audience; he had to apologize for them
many times. Then Filmex decided to run two hours of Puppetoons as part
of their programming one year. The screening was held at a now-defunct
(along with Filmex) theater over near MGM. At the end of the screening,
which went over very well, a reluctant Pal was brought out before the
audience -- which leaped to their feet collectively, cheering and applauding.
George Pal put his face in his hands, and wept."
