$16.99 Add to cart
The classic Canadian children's book by Mordecai Richler is brought to life in this low budget yet extravagantly staged adaptation directed by Theodore J. Flicker (The President's Analyst, Barney Miller). After complaining that he is too little to have any fun, Jacob is sent to the corner store by his parents to pick up two quarts of chocolate ice cream. The clerk jokingly accuses Jacob of making fun of him, scared, Jacob runs away to a nearby park before the clerk can reassure him that they were only kidding. In the park, Jacob falls asleep in some playground equipment, under a pile of leaves. There he dreams the story of the Hooded Fang, taking characters and elements from his "real life" (as seen in the first 5 minutes of the film) and turning them into a strange nightmare world.
