The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) has recently put a lot of their films online for your viewing pleasure. I just poked around a bit and found two of my favorite films.
Log Driver’s Waltz is certainly one of the things I remember most about watching TV as a kid. This little video was on all the time in between all of the kids shows.
I don’t think I ever knew the proper words but I recognized that song anytime I heard it.
Then there was also The Sweater which was about the kid who got sent a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey by mistake when he ordered from the Eaton’s (wow, there’s a name I haven’t thought of in a long time!) catalog. All of his buddies (and himself) were huge Rocket Richard fans.
The National Film Board has done a great job here. I’ll have to spend some more time looking through the other films online and see what other fantastic memorable films I can find.
