I am quite fond of "THE SMALL ONE." It's a quintessential Disney story with all the key elements: beautiful animation, characters with whom we empathize. a sweet story, well-written music and heart-tugging sentiment. This was created during the "passing of the baton" from the old animators to the "new kids" in the 70s. It's a lovely little film, and this background beautifully evokes the "Holy Land" setting of the story.
