Greetings! Even though October is officially done I wanted to list some of my favorite movie, short and show binges I’ve had during the month! Some are new, while others I’ve made a tradition to watch every year. So let’s get started.
For today I have cartoon shorts I have found/ continue to watch to this day!

“Teeny Tiny and the Witch Woman” (1980)
“In The Night Kitchen” (1987)
“The Three Robbers” (1972)
“The Old Man of the Mountain” (1933)
“The Skeleton Dance” (1929)
“The Tale Tell Heart” (1953)

Short Films/Film Sequences:
Disney’s “Ichabod Crane” (1949)
“Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria” (1940)

German Expressionist Films (And those made by their directors):
1.God closed my eyes so I could see the real Gywplaine.
2.A king made me a clown, a queen made me a lord, but God made me first a man!
I decided to write to quotes because I believe they are connected. The first is the moment when Gwyplaine realizes Dea, despite his fears of losing her, loves him even knowing his face is deformed.
The second is the moment he proclaims from the depths of his soul the essence of who he really is. There is power knowing who we really are. And there is power in truly living and being loved by others.
