calder's circus

Alexander Calder.
My all time favorite artist.
I have a wonderful film on VHS
of Calder performing with his circus 
 I tried to find a copy on DVD...no go.
Here is a clip of this special, special film:
Love it as you can see Calder's wife manning the music
with a necklace he made for her.
You can see his mobile hanging, gently swaying.
The music is also fantastic.

 I did find another film on DVD:
It's also fantastic yet different from the Roland version.
Here is a clip of this one:
Both capture
Calder's brilliance.
What a talented man...with a child's imagination.
