Siegfried slaying the dragon was used as a trailer for the restored edition of the film. [more inside]

The Skeldale Boys. Like the works of JamesHerriot? Would you like them better if some failed english major wrote the stories in the third person omniscent and filled them with homosexual longing? Me neither, but it's still interesting to know it exists and ask "why?".
