THE BOOTLEG FILES: “THE THIEF AND THE COBBLER”

(EDITORS NOTE: This week, Film Threat sent Phil Hall on an emergency humanitarian mission – to save Katie Holmes from an advanced case of Cruise Control – and while Phil is away this week’s column will be helmed by artist and animation historian Chris Sobieniak. So take it away, Chris…)

BOOTLEG FILES 084: “The Thief and the Cobbler” (Richard Williams’ butchered animated masterwork, made between 1968 and 1995).

LAST SEEN: Never screened as the filmmaker intended.

AMERICAN HOME VIDEO: None in its intended version.

REASON FOR DISAPPEARANCE: This project has been damned every since it began.
