Lotte Reiniger in ’51

I just watched a charming old hygiene video made by Lotte Reiniger, whose 1926 Adventures of Prince Achmed was the first full-length animated film, magically created with hand-cut silhouettes. Adventures of Prince Achmed

The animation here was made for the BFI 25 years later. If she created Achmed when she was in her 20s, then she may have been in her early-mid 50s when this one was done.
