Sure we all knew Dr. Seuss had to be a little weird. What type of person thinks of “Thing One” and “Things Two” anyways?
A surrealist brained person, that’s who!
We’ve all read the Dr. Seuss books and have seen hollywood try to make these books into movies, but did you know the Dr. himself wrote a movie? Oh yes… yes he did! And it wasn’t from one of his known books either. Dr. Seuss aka Theodor Seuss Geisel penned a full length feature film called: The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.
What’s the film about?
Actually we are not sure even after watching the preview, but that’s partially cause we thought the Lorax or the Cat In The Hat was going to pop out and somehow make the chaos make sense! Seriously what’s going on here….
Don’t think too hard about what you just saw, you’ll get what only can be described as an ‘ice cream’ headache. To make sense of this film we are going to attend a illustrated lecture at the Observatory.
On March 8, 2012 Ted Enik, illustrator and author, will be doing multimedia examination of The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T to help us get to the bottom of this crazy movie and maybe also help us to get inside the creator of all things silly, Dr. Seuss.
Here’s the Details:
