Run, Run: A Jim Henson Home Movie

(YouTube link)

Run, Run is a home movie and an experimental film at the same time. It is a pastoral interlude showing Muppet creator Jim Hensons' daughters Lisa and Cheryl running through the Connecticut woods in the autumn of 1965. The film was never used commercially, but inspired other, similar sequences. Henson and his wife Jane had five children; at the time, the two boys were too young to run through the woods, and the youngest daughter had not yet been born. Lisa Henson, in the yellow sweater, is now CEO of the Jim Henson Company.

While fact-checking this post, I found out that Henson had a bachelor's degree in home economics, and he met his wife Jane when they both worked on an afternoon TV show aimed at housewives. Who knew? -via mental_floss.
