Decent Animated Short

The First Circus (1921)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This early animated short is rather interesting if not all together good. The first section talks about Darwin and then we see a couple monkeys playing. The second chapter deals with the first circus and we see various animals marching alone before seeing how they were during Stonehendge. I'm really not sure what the stories of these were supposed to mean or why they're connected together but each one runs a couple minutes so obviously the film is short enough to where you can enjoy it without being bored. The silhouette animation for the most part is good but there's certainly nothing ground-breaking here. I enjoyed it more than most people have but it's certainly not something you must see.
