Tulips Shall Grow

A beautiful print of George Pal’s anti-Nazi Puppetoon Tulips Shall Grow is one of the films now available to view at Europa Film Treasures. They also have La Grande Revue Philips 1938, a French print of The Great Philips Review, one of a series of advertising films Pal produced for the company during his time in Holland in the 1930s.

More on George Pal here. And also.

I could be wrong but I think this film survives thanks to the extraordinary people at Lobster Films - certainly, I first saw it at one of their Retour de Flamme (Rescued from the Flames) shows. It's an astonishing piece of work.

It's included in The Puppetoon Movie, but shorn of the beautifully lettered titles.
