OMG I love these - and I've only seen the first one so far. Could be I saw these in school as a kid... vaguely familiar as a sort of visceral memory that maybe I was gonna turn out okay... Thanks Ze!

I remember this movie clearly from grade school, and make it a point to show it every year at a neighborhood outdoor film festival that I host.
I strongly recommend!

A teacher in one of my favorite high school classes in the mid-70s played this for us on a regular basis. I loved it then and I love to see it again now. I had no idea that it was done by Saul Bass (back then I didn't know who Saul Bass was, either). Knowing his role in its creation makes it that much more special. I'm grateful to that teacher for showing it smart-aleck teenager. It really made a difference in my life. Thanks for the post!
