Via AV Geeks, here’s the story of Squeak the squirrel, an educational film from 1957.
Shows how a gold-mantled ground squirrel at Crater Lake National Park has learned to solve problems connected with getting food. Illustrates how an animal can learn to find food that is hidden from view or out of reach.
This is one of the AV Geeks favorite films, mostly because Squeak is somewhat of a working class hero who, in spite of what obstacles “the Man” puts in his way, always perseveres.
The last part of the film, where Squeak has to maneuver a platform into place, is amazing.
