Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This film brings to life on the screen three of the immortal tales of Aesop. The fox is seen in his encounters with a crow and a piece of cheese; with a stork; and with the proverbial bunch of grapes. The photography of these animals is the result of more than a year’s patient work by Lynwood Chase, well-known American naturalist and photographer.
