Franz Kafka's It's a Wonderful Life/End of the World/House that Jack built

The House That Jack Built from National Film Board of Canada on Vimeo.
by Ron Tunis — 1967

A humorous animation film about that fellow we all know, who builds his house in the best suburb he can afford, and then aches to be somewhere better. He had a picture bride, a picture window, and a garden as pretty as a Better Homes and Gardens picture. But so did everyone else. He wanted something special and, like Jack and the Beanstalk, he finally got it. What he got is a moral for all.

Production : National Film Board of Canada (
