Happy Fingers

The Internet Archive now has the trailer for The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T., the 1953 live action film to a script and design by Dr. Seuss, the pre-eminent moral philosopher of the late 20th century. The movie, for which the trailer is no substitute, is really sort of a mess, but brilliant at times, atomic even, and the best film yet about evil piano teachers. The young hero of the film, by the way is one Bartholomew Collins (left, played by Tommy Rettig, wearing the beany of the Dr. Terwilliger Happy Fingers Institute), who, of course, has grown up to write a well-known blog about pianoing and other things.
