I saw Tim, Ellenpolly. My favorite scene is when he explains the literary conceit of the Wind In The Willows. It has animals that can talk, like people! So sweet and boyish.

You want obscure? The single existing video of my wife's production of My Emperor's New Clothes, by Larry Shue.

Aurora, from the W.C. Williams story The Witch. To see it properly you need to see the version translated and dubbed through 3 or 4 languages with it's strange off-set underwater quality. I saw it as a kid late one night. The short-story did nothing for me, but the messed-up production values gave it a weird power.
