Apr 23 2011

Just found this won­der­ful video on youtube, it fea­tures impro­vised dia­logue from Dizzy Gille­spie and George Mathews.

The Hole is a 1962 short ani­ma­tion by John Hub­ley and Faith Hub­ley that won an Acad­emy Award for Short Sub­jects (Car­toons) in 1962.
The film uses impro­vised dia­logue from Dizzy Gille­spie and George Math­ews as two con­struc­tion work­ers at work in the bot­tom of a hole on a con­struc­tion site dis­cussing the pos­si­bil­ity of an acci­den­tal nuclear weapons attack — wikipedia.
