Hard-boiled eggs turn against black background. In "Trademark eggs" many eggs rotate continuously, as if by magic. The effect is achieved by a simple trick: The eggs were turned and shaken on a black plate. (LEXIKON DES NEUEN EUROPÄISCHEN FILMS) "Trademark eggs" shows a handful of these chicken-final-products, hard boiled like tracer bullets shooting over a black film, rotating on it. (KLAUS ULRICH REINKE, DÜSSELDORF, HEFTE, SEPT. 68)

'The Fiddler' (1975) 20m, dir. Marshall Riggan. This amazing film showcases an elderly East Texas fiddle maker and his wife. After his hand-crafted fiddle is finished, we discover that he's an amazing country fiddler, too. This 'lost' film was produced by Riggan for a religious organization. Later, under new management, the organization apparently decided that the film was more profane than sacred, and discarded or destroyed all remaining prints.

A parable about the consequences of being a bystander to evil, from a disturbing poem by Maurice Ogden, read by Herschel Bernardi. Shadows and shifting geometric planes lend a Chirico-like quality to Julian's animation. Great musical score by Serge Hovey. About the film, Steve Goldman writes: "Les Goldman was my father. Creating this film was one of the most important accomplishments of his life. He was inspired to make this film after hearing the poem 'Hangman' read on Pacifica Radio in...

In the lower half of the screen the legs of a dancing girl can be seen, in the upper half of the screen we have perforated movie - in a butterfly way.
