Description

A student film by Charles Krausie, Art Center College of Design. A sardonic and thoroughly professional cartoon film in which Uncle Sam is a stage magician, making stereotyped American images come out of his hat, until inadvertently he pulls out images of the Vietnam War; and in trying to push them back into his hat, he is pulled into the hat himself and vaporized. Selected for presentation on the new Smothers Brothers TV series. [Source: Creative Film Society catalog, 1972]
