Trump the musical

The other day, Mr Trump proposed buying Greenland. This is so absurd, it could be part of the plot for an old MGM Musical- imagine one of the first songs by Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen!

These pages were part of a pack I was given by Richard Williams in 1972. By this point, he had already changed the film’s name from “Nasruddin!” to “The thief and the Cobbler” though it is possible that the second page was something I collected from a later visit…



RIP Richard Williams

When I was 11, I wrote to Richard Williams who invited me up to 13 Soho square and I never looked back. We met a few more times after that and I know personally of his kindness, his drive and his immense talent. He is the author of the bible of animation, a signed copy of which is in my bathroom, and another two copies on my desk and in my briefcase. He is also the director of “A Christmas carol” (1972 oscar winner), “Who framed Roger Rabbit?” (another 2 oscars) and the unfinished film “the Thief and the Cobbler”


and the magnificent prologue

Quite simply the best!
