Hearts and Flowers

It’s the love triangle of your nightmares.

A very odd stop-motion puppet affair from 1930, this herky-jerky short film tells the tale of two weirdos fighting for the hand of a third weirdo.

And did I mention all the roles are played by puppets who happen to be creepy … even by puppet standards?

Who was this even made for? No, seriously, I’m asking cause I have no clue.

It wasn’t aimed at kids, what with the “female” star disrobing — behind some house blinds, creating an animated silhouette of stockings being thrown asunder.

Apparently your great-great grandparents had some issues…
