National Film Board of Canada

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.

Note: For some reason I had a really difficult time getting these videos to embed in my page. I tried copying the HTML as provided by the NFB but in the end I had to strip it down quite a bit to get the videos to play. If it seems slow or doesn’t work well, just go directly to the NFB website.
