The Great Frost Scene from Orlando

The Great Frost scene in Virginia Woolf’s Orlando is legendary. I’d be remiss if I didn’t share this bit from Simple Gifts, first broadcast way back for the Christmas of 1977. Animated by Tissa David and narrated by Hermione Gingold, it’s a fun holiday watch.

(Many thanks to Blogging Woolf for bringing this to my attention on her blog!)
