 * What does Terry Gilliam thinks about The Mascot by Ladislas Starewitch ?  See The Guardian... “It was at the Sitges film festival that I first saw an exhibition of work by the pioneering Russian animator Wladyslaw Starewicz, and the puppets were so enrapturing that when I got home I ordered up all the tapes I could find of his work. His work is absolutely breathtaking, surreal,inventive and extraordinary, encompassing everything that Jan Svankmajer, Walerian Borowczyk and the Quay Brothers would do subsequently. This is his last film, after The Tale of the Fox from 1930 ; it is all right there in this cosmic animation soup. It is important, before you journey through all these mind-bending worlds, to remember that it was all done years ago, by someone most of us have forgotten about now. This is where it all began.” Terry Gilliam, The Guardian, Friday 27 April 2001 about The Mascot  by Wladyslaw Starewicz , France 1934. (T. Gilliam uses the polish spelling, Ladislas Starewitch is the spelling used by L. Starewitch when he arrived in France.)

* During the autumn Byrne Power met Léona-Béatrice Martin-Starewitch in PARIS :  … “Starewitch is a big influence on the Brothers Quay. When I mentioned him to Švankmajer, he immediately corrected my translator who was fumbling with the name a bit. Terry Gilliam also owes him a real debt and considers The Mascot as one of the ten greatest animated films made. Tim Burton’s animated work screams Starewitch. And Fetiche Mascotte seems like a direct ancestor of Toy Story. And if Wes Anderson did not make a careful study of Starewitch before making the Fantastic Mr. Fox. I’d be really surprised. Starewitch, like George Méliès, is one of those seminal figures, an original, an inventor, whose work is still literally marvelous !” Byrne Power.    Read more !
