Arctic survival

Commercial for cigarettes for the brand Player’s. Puppet animation in which a man goes fishing but by accident ends up on a snow mountain. Fortunately, Eskimos offer him player's cigarettes.

Trivia

Despite of the styled environment, the puppets are all very detailed. Look for instance at the number of expressions of the main character and the Eskimos. Also the seals, that scurry away frightened, deserve attention. These are solid wood fases. A series of 18 pieces were used to show this movement of the seals. The preserved scan of this film unfortunately has poor coloring.
In the same year, Dollywood also produced a second commercial for this advertiser: "Pleasure bound"(1960)
