500. Special Delivery – John Weldon, Eunice Macaulay


SUMMARY: A tangled farce involving an icy walkway, an adulterous wife and a dead postman.

WHY IT’S HERE: John Weldon and Eunice Macaulay’s ‘Special Delivery’, is a wonderfully dark little farce involving a dead postman, an adulterous wife, a wrongful arrest and lots of wrongly jumped-to conclusions. ‘Special Delivery’s greatest strength is its script, written by the film’s directors Eunice Macaulay and John Weldon but the simple animation style seems perfectly suited to this droll little tale. It a neatly representative film for the many wonderful cartoons that came from The National Film Board of Canada.
