    On another website was a listing of all the Lucas films (including the student films.)

    As I scanned down it, I noticed "Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town" which was a short film.
    I was interested because of the E.E. Cummings poem by the same name which is the following,
    anyone lived in a pretty how town
    (with up so floating many bells down)
    spring summer autumn winter
    he sang his didn't he danced his did

    Women and men(both little and small)
    cared for anyone not at all
    they sowed their isn't they reaped their same
    sun moon stars rain

    children guessed(but only a few
    and down they forgot as up they grew
    autumn winter spring summer)
    that noone loved him more by more

    when by now and tree by leaf
    she laughed his joy she cried his grief
    bird by snow and stir by still
    anyone's any was all to her

    someones married their everyones
    laughed their cryings and did their dance
    (sleep wake hope and then)they
    said their nevers they slept their dream

    stars rain sun moon
    (and only the snow can begin to explain
    how children are apt to forget to remember
    with up so floating many bells down)

    one day anyone died i guess
    (and noone stooped to kiss his face)
    busy folk buried them side by side
    little by little and was by was

    all by all and deep by deep
    and more by more they dream their sleep
    noone and anyone earth by april
    wish by spirit and if by yes.

    Women and men(both dong and ding)
    summer autumn winter spring
    reaped their sowing and went their came
    sun moon stars rain

    by ee cummings

    I was just wondering if anyone had any information on this short film or if anyone has seen it.

    Thanks

    All I've seen is the stills, probably the same ones you saw. They looked interesting.

    Loved the poem. The short clip had some nice shots in it. I'm curious if there is any spoken dialogue in the movie at all.
