THE GREAT LAND OF SMALL / Les Productions La Fête Inc. - 1987

Here's a weird little flick I transferred from VHS a few years ago, so, it must be time to check it out! It's a Canadian movie about two children that enter a fantasy kingdom where they are confronted by evil forces. Not that complicated...

I've got a little sound clip from this movie for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our bag of fool's gold dust, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a sample of... THE GREAT LAND OF SMALL!

The story starts at a circus where mom explains to her two kids where they came from! Not really, she's doing some stretching before she practices her act.

Michael J. Anderson plays Fritz, the king of Small. Now, if you ever wanted to know about a super interesting person in film, well, this is your guy!! Just a couple of things about this amazing 3' 7" man... He was born in Huron, South Dakota, on Halloween night in 1953 with the disease Osteogenesis Imperfecta and grew up in a wheelchair, worked for Martin Marietta, troubleshooting NASA computers in ground-support systems of the space shuttle, was the backwards-talking dream figure on the cult TV series TWIN PEAKS and worked on the experimental performance piece 'Industrial Symphony No. 1: The Dream of the Brokenhearted' for David Lynch.

Here's the guy that ends up with gold dust but his name's not Dustin! A little note, our hero wrassler Dusty Rhodes just died last week on June 11th...

Here's the thing, cross over through the rainbow and you enter The Great Land Of Small!

I dunno, I just don't think that The Great Land Of Small is actually all that great!

With limited budgets, people have to be creative, that's what I always say. Look at this shot, it's like, see what you can come up with at the dump when you're in charge of set design..

Here are people going into this modern looking concert hall, they have tickets to see...

THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN!!.. "I am the god of Hell fire and I bring you.. Fire, I'll take you to burn, fire, I'll take you to learn, I'll see you burn!"

Anywho, the dude with the dust causes the volcano to shoot off fireworks as our heroine tries to stop him. He shoots a burst of colorful plasma at her and...

Knocks her on her ass!.. Not to worry, the good guys win, and, we're back tomorrow with more from... The Dungeon!!
