COMMENT DU JOUR
DAY FOR NIGHT -another great movie about movies

I'm not sure if I like it more than 8 1/2 or Singing in the Rain, but when the majestic trumpet music plays, it reminds me of why I love cinema in the first place. The actors are terrific in this film as well. However, nothing will top Topsy-Turvy for me about the mystery,repetition, and heartbreak of the artistic process.❞ -Lars

Can you guess the movie? Check your guess after the jump.

That hand belongs to "Nicodemus" (voiced by Derek Jacobi) and this is Don Bluth's well regarded animated film The Secret of Nimh (1982). Correctly guessed by "Be Right Back".

can you decipher all the secret messages?

The Secret of NIMH?

July 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBeRightBack

It's pretty clearly The Secret of NIMH. Too easy Nat.

Oh, how I loved Secret of Nimh as a kid!

July 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKim

bonus points if anyone can name whose handwriting it is.

Nicodemus, no?

July 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStep

Step's right. It is absolutely Nicodemus from The Secret of NIMH.

I thought if it could have been the Pagemaster starring Mac Culkin for a second. But, clearly not.

July 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlex BBats

It's absolutely Nicodemus. The Secret of NIMH is magical, by the way; one of *the* best literary screen adaptations—and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH was one hell of a source material—ever made.

P.S. Isn't it a shame that Hollywood animators don't tackle (with the exception of Coraline) dark, thorny children's stories anymore?

This film is a miracle. In a time when Disney animation had clearly lost its way, Don Bluth created this masterpiece. I like to believe that Nimh, and the weaker but still very good films An American Tail and Anastasia pushed Disney into the 2nd golden age we saw in the 90's.

Long live Mrs. Jonathan Brisby!
