Collector’s Set Includes

White Mane box cover

White Mane

Albert Lamorisse 1952

In the south of France, in a vast plain region called the Camargue, lives White Mane, a magnificent stallion and the leader of a herd of wild horses too proud to let themselves be broken by humans. Only Folco, a young fisherman, manages to tame him.


The Red Balloon box cover

The Red Balloon

Albert Lamorisse 1956

Albert Lamorisse’s exquisite The Red Balloon remains one of the most beloved children’s films of all time. In this deceptively simple, nearly wordless tale, a young boy discovers a stray balloon, which seems to have a mind of its own, on the streets of Paris.


Paddle to the Sea box cover

Paddle to the Sea

William Mason 1966

Based on Holling C. Holling’s beloved, Caldecott-awarded children’s book, William Mason’s stunning film follows the adventures of a tiny, wood-carved canoe as it forges its own path from Lake Superior through the Great Lakes and down to the Atlantic Ocean.
