The Thief and the Cobbler

de Richard Williams

Synopsis

In 1964, Richard Williams began to work on a project inspired by A Thousand and One Nights. The film would tell the vicissitudes of a cobbler, a princess and an unfortunate thief, and would push the animation envelope. Lacking patience, the company that invested in the project finished it on its own, poorly and in a hurry. Today, we can finally see the film exactly as its creator conceived it.
