The Phantom Tollbooth

10 months ago at Aug 27 1:08
Here’s an underrated and barely known quantity in Chuck Jones’ career. His lone feature-length film, The Phantom Tollbooth is his second dip into Norton Juster’s work, but with less explosive results than the adventurous “The Dot and the Line.” It’s still a very enjoyable and enjoyably strange effort, but there’s the persistent feeling that something is missing here.   Normally an... read more
